- Mino Cinèlu / drums, percussions
- Olivier Hutman / claviers (piano, pianofender), clavinette, Hammond, Micro Moog - Patrice Cinèlu / guitars
- Gilles Douieb / bass guitar
- Denis Barbier / flutes(sol,ut,mi bemol et piccolo)
- Eric Letourneux / saxes(alto, soprano)

Highly fluid French fusion with funk inclinations and a subtly masterful touch. Lotsa flute driven passages of percolating grooviness in the mode of The Chris Hinze Combination, Jean Cohen-Solal and Jeremy Steig along with others whose combination of intensive depth and frothy effervescence call to mind Michal Urbaniak's Fusion and the Dutch jazz rockers Solution.
They were a kind of supergroup, with four members previously in Moravagine , flautist Denis Barbier, keyboardist Olivier Huntman, saxophonist Pierre-Jean Gidon and the drummer Mino Cinelu, the latter also being a much-travelled session musician and in bands as diverse as Gong and Weather Report.
