STRATUS LUNA CDs back in stock - Astonishing debut of a teenage progressive rock band from Brazil
MusicMagick (Brazil) and MoonJune Music (USA)
present the astonishing debut of a
teenage progressive rock band from São Paulo, Brazil
Music so mature, coming from 4 kids
who are between 17 and 21 years old!
Two brothers, one cousin and one best friend.
And magic happened.
"...Absolutely floored by the debut album of the Brazilian teenage band STRATUS LUNA. Their oldest member is only 21! Faultless playing with lots of dynamics and boldness, their music drinks from various aspects of the overarching progressive rock genre, embracing psychedelic, jazz rock, symphonic rock, and ethnic elements – touching on all styles and seamlessly shifting from one to another as if it's one organic whole. Vintage keyboards serve as the canvas for some masterfully executed compositions, full of moving ideas while keeping the listener's interest. Challenging any possible expectations, and ultimately awakening riveting and uplifting sentiments though their way of digesting the musical ideas, these kids have a tremendously bright future ahead of them. Highest recommendation..." - Joel Barrios, Sonic Perspective
Stratus Luna is a band from São Paulo, Brazil, consisting of the four members Gustavo Santhiago (keyboards, flutes and sitar), Ricardo Santhiago (guitars), Gabriel Golfetti (bass and keyboards) and Giovanni Lenti (drums and percussion).
In 2007, brothers Gustavo and Ricardo with their cousin Giovanni, all very young at the time, played as a trio on various television programs aimed at children. Year after year, the sound of the band continuously evolved and improved, eventually converging to the current progressive style. In late 2017, bassist Gabriel joined the others to cap the formation, and introduce even more influences to the music, shaping the band's current sound. In April 2019 they released their self-titled album on the Brazilian label MusicMagick, distributed and marketed internationally by MoonJune Music.
