Portuguese prog rock with some definite jazz tendencies.Interesting and worthwhile addition to any prog fans collection.Very much like "french prog jazz" ZAO meets Italian ARTI MESTIERI, with lots of Sax , Moog and electric violin. Highly professional musicianship and even an oriental (indian) feel to some songs , from which the band's name is a clear source. Very strong is also the late 70's Frank Zappa influence, along with a strong impro funky style reminding me some early Funkadelic works or the 70s Miles Davis explorations in funk music.
