Senogul is a progressive ensemble from the north of Spain. The musicians' own style features a wide range of influences, mixing classic Progressive rock and jazz-rock structures, ethnic instruments (especially from Africa, Asia and South America), classical forms and some atmospheric sections, among other elements. Their albums are truly unique and surprising, like the amazing "III", published in the year 2011 by the Musea Parallele label. Mainly instrumental III is the third album from the band containing eight varied compositions showing off their obvious musical chops on a diverse range of both acoustic and electric instruments. Let's note some important guest musicians involved, such as bulgarian kaval player Theodosii Spassov (The Glimpse), Marcos Mantero (keyboards player from Iman Califato Independiente), Luis Cobo "Manglis" or Pedro Ontiveros (guitarist and saxophonist from Guadalquivir).

Bands such as Genesis and Yes inspired them, and they took their name from the Yes album "Fragile" (1972). Fragil have released four albums and this is a re-edition of their first album "Avenida Larco" from 1981. Their sound is very beautiful, often dreamy and dominated by typical 80's sounding polyphonic synthesisers and lyrics in Spanish.

In 1997, it came as a quite a surprise when Fantasy reissued Opa's albums Golden Wings (1976) and Magic Time (1977) on a single 74-minute CD – surprising because the fusion trio had only a very small following; its albums were far from big sellers, and the original LP versions were in print for only a few years. If one notices some similarity between the melodic blend of jazz, rock, funk, pop, and Brazilian music heard on this disc and Airto Moreira's CTI dates of the 1970s, it's no coincidence – Moreira produced both Golden Wings and Magic Time and plays percussion on both of them. Opa members Hugh Fattoruso (keyboards, vocals), George Fattoruso (drums, vocals, percussion), and Ringo Thielmann (bass, vocals) often worked with the percussionist and his wife, Flora Purim, in the 1970s, and his influence clearly rubbed off. It's regrettable that Opa were never as commercially successful as either Moreira or Purim, although this CD points to the fact that it wasn't due to a lack of rewarding material.

S'il est un exemple en France d'éditeur indépendant dynamique, c'est bien celui du label lorrain K.617. Depuis le début des années 90, celui-ci, sous la houlette d'Alain Pacquier, explore, défriche des terres musicales jusque-là inconnues de nos contemporains. Il faut dire que le répertoire exhumé est celui d'Amérique latine ; autrement dit, K.617 a fait ici œuvre de pionnier en révélant aux discophiles des merveilles sonores insoupçonnées. Comme en témoignent la réédition de La Purpura de la Rosa et des musiques extraites de la Mission San Francisco Xavier : des pièces issues du riche patrimoine baroque d'Amérique latine, où tout virevolte, où les rythmes s'entrechoquent, où les voix émeuvent par leur prégnance et la richesse de la palette expressive. Des (re)découvertes qui ne peuvent laisser insensible.
