After new, splendid bands like Bijou and Senogul here is Zaguan. They are
rooted in 1997 and started as a Triana cover band. If you listen to the
vocals this is not a surprise, incredible how similar the singer sounds to
the late Jesus De La Rosa who died tragically in a car accident early The
Eighties! If I compare Zaguan their own compositions to Triana I analyse
that Zaguan sound less symphonic (short compositions and a small range of
keyboards) and more folky because of the more omnipresent flamenco guitar.
That's also why I have Zaguan categorized as prog folk. The 11 songs on this
CD are a very melodic and tasteful progressive blend of rock, folk and
symphonic featuring strong and expressive vocals (but not that typical
wailing of the flamenco singers), some fiery and howling electric guitar and
fluent Hammond organ soli and lots of exciting flamenco guitar runs. I fyou
like Rock Andalus, especially Triana, this great Spanish prog folk band is
worth to check out, WHAT A MOVING EXPERIENCE!
