4 stars Mmm - am I the first reviewer ? OK! Nazca was quite underrated but brave quintet from Mexico in 1980s - the direction of their music is quite difficult to describe. The name of the band refers towards very old times' Indian cultures which dominated on present areas of Peru thousands of years ago. The music is maybe kind of new-classical musics (for example Stravinsky) mixtured with avant-garde, RIO and hints to very old South American Indian flavour - but very original. Nazca contained five classical-trained musicians who played such kind of instruments as violin, bassoon+oboe, drums/percussion, bass guitar, viola, el. piano and cello. The most known of these musicians are maybe violinist Alejandro Sanchez (played before in Mexican RIO-band Decibel) and bassoon player Juan Carlos Ruiz (leads his band Culto Sin Nombre which is sometimes quite similar to the musical directions of Nazca). Incredible debut, maybe I'd prefer soundspectrum of the next effort of them more. Very worth to discover!
