Aktuala - La Terra LP
Label: Bla Bla
Limited edition green vinyl.
La Terra is the second Aktuala's LP, made by an 'open musical collective' from Milan, a fixed nucleus with many different contributes from guest musicians. As the Third Ear Band have always been inserted in the international prog panorama, the same happened with Aktuala, who were real music pioneers able to blend world, ethnic, jazz and avant-garde music.
La Terra was released in 1974 and consolidated the fame and the harmony of Aktuala, more and more at the center of attention of critics and listeners, who used to attend their concerts 'on the road' rather than in the typical festival/venue environment; the album contains four long compositions in which the wide range of instruments and sounds has been blended to perfection, and is not affected in any way by Lino 'Capra' Vaccina and Laura Maioli leaving, promptly replaced by Otto Corrado Indian and Trilok Gurtu, now among the world leading experts of percussions.
