Los  Elementales-  Fuerzas Magicas  De  La  Naturaleza  was  composed and  originally released  in  1977,  at  the  apex  of  Arco  Iris’  prolific  musical  career.  A well-deserved successor  to  Agitor  Lucens,  it  is  their  most  prog-oriented  masterpiece,  a  veritable distillation of years of uniquely carved and meticulously executed psych/folk/jazz tunes that earned them their reputation among Argentina’s cultural pantheon’s finest. If nature ever spoke genuinely to a band and shared with them the alchemical secrets of the Druids, then that band must not have been other than Arco Iris. Los Elementales is a mélange of prog wilderness, domesticated through a mirror of production that reflects the indelible mark of Ara Tokatlian’s conundrum of tenor sax, Andean woodwinds and moog, interspersed with jazz-fusion, glimpses of latin-funk and randomly popping electronics. All of the above, scaffolded on a conceptual platform that puts in motion, evokes and seeks to simulate the intermingling of the elements of nature, by punctuating them in contrapuntal moments.

This  much  sought  after  by collectors  album  will  appeal  to  the  same  extent  to  prog aficionados, latin funk crate-diggers, and prog-jazz crazies. But, above all, this is a re- release that intends to please Arco Iris’ core fans, by enveloping the music in 4 limited to 100 numbered copies, in 4 different colors, one for each element of nature (water/blue, fire/red, earth/orange, air/silver), with the original gatefold cover and insert.
