Phoenix was a romanian prog band, what is your opinion about their music? if you don't know their songs, you can download 3 songs from this site. I think they are great.

they were something like jethro tull with many influences from trad. romanian music. they started in the 60, had 3 lp's between 71 and 75 (?) then left romania. give a listen.
and whoever put them on progarchives will maybe add  the other great romanian band, sfinx.

I know a band called Phoenix, but it is french and not prog at all.
And it seems it's not only known in France.

Canto fabule is excellent, a truly superior album blending folk, symphonic, psychedelic, hard and space-rock. Gorgeous vocal harmonies, nice use of guitars and a fascinating use of synthesizers. Really one of the more outstanding things from behind the Iron Curtain in the 70ís.

The only other Phoenix album Iíve heard is Mugur de fluier, which is a bit of a more typical folk-rock, but worth hearing due to its profound Romanian feel. Itís superbly done, just not as unique and ďspecialĒ as Canto fabule.
