Arco Iris - Los Elementales (1977)

The seventh album from this band from Argentina.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, bandura, saxophones, flute, organ, synths, piano, mini moog and vocals.

Arco Iris has so far given us two classics and some not so brilliant albums. Their mix of fusion, folk and prog has engaged me and it has been fun reviewing their first six albums.

We are now at their seventh album and that one starts out with an epic piece of fusion. The music is pretty close to where we found Mahavishnu Orchestra. 

Is that the whole story of this forty minutes long album ?


The band then switches over to some funky, Spanish vocals driven rock and pop. There is some folk rock and progressive rock in these songs before we get some more fusion.... or Arco Iris take on fusion.

The music is pretty good throughout and this album is giving me a lot of food for thought. Just like I prefer music to be. The music is also groovy too. It is very much a satisfactory album.

Check out this album.
