CAI was a harmonic Spanish quintet with Diego Fopiani Macias (drums/vocals),
Jose A. Fernandez Mariscall (guitar), Francisco Delgado Gonzalez (guitar),
Sebastian Dominguez Lozano (keyboards and piano) and Jose Velez Gomez
(bass/vocals). They released three albums entitled "Mas Alla Mentes
Diminutas" (1978), "Noche Abierta" (1980) and "Cancion De La Primavera"
(1981). The second and third album are released as a 1-CD.
The album "Noche abierta" (1980) is one of the gems of Spanish progressive
rock. The seven tracks sound pleasant with warm Spanish vocals, tasteful
keyboards (piano, strings, synthesizers and organ) and sensitive electric
guitar. The integration of "the art of the flamenco" guitar gives this
progrock an extra dimension. If you like melodic and tasteful seventies
prog, embellished with some flamenco, this one is for you!
