Released in 1970, Magma's début album Kobaïa succeeded beyond anyone's wildest expectations. The group's sound blended diverse influences from Bach to Coltrane to produce a brand new musical style. While the instruments were familiar, they were used in unconventional ways, and the vocals, which called on an invented language, only heightened the otherworldly affect of this revolutionary band."
