A very famous band in Chile,FULANO were formed by a group of friends/musicians in Santiago in 1984.From the very first moment the band wanted to create something experimental and personal and the numerous rehearsals led to an eponymous album in 1987,initially released on cassete,re-realeased in 1994 on CD format.

FULANO are unquestionably a fusion band with a totally artistic point of view,blending Jazz with R.I.O.,Avant-Garde and rock.Equally split in fast tempo compositions and Avant-Garde/Jazz passages,the sound of FULANO is based on the strong interplays of the rhythm section and the wind instruments.Guitars are scarce and very distinctive,as the whole story unfolds around the HENRY COW-like heavy use of saxophones and the pleasant excurssions of the clarinet,played by Cristian Cristoso and Jaime Vasquez.These wind-based passages get even richer with the complicated bass work of Jorge Campos and the solid drumming of Guillermo Valenzuela.As for keyboards,there is a steady use of delicate electric piano as a supporting instrument,while the vocals of Arlette Jequier are fantastic,ranging from impressive wordless chords to expressive,theatrical lyrics.FULANO are not your typical Jazz-Rock ensemble.Their thetrical approach to Jazz makes them more than just interesting and anyone after some original Jazz-Rock/Fusion should definitely check them out.Strongly recommended!
