Arco Iris

Los Elementales - Fuerzas Magicas De La Naturaleza (LP, Coloured)

Label: PQR - Disques Plusqueréel

Format: LP, Coloured

Genre: Psych

Preorder: Releases December 5, 2022


*Limited edition of 400 copies in 4 colours numbered to 100 copies each.* Los Elementales- Fuerzas Magicas De La Naturaleza was composed and originally released in 1977, at the apex of Arco Iris’ prolific musical career. A well-deserved successor to Agitor Lucens, it is their most prog-oriented masterpiece, a veritable distillation of years of uniquely carved and meticulously executed psych/folk/jazz tunes that earned them their reputation among Argentina’s cultural pantheon’s finest. If nature ever spoke genuinely to a band and shared with them the alchemical secrets of the Druids, then that band must not have been other than Arco Iris. Los Elementales is a mélange of prog wilderness, domesticated through a mirror of production that reflects the indelible mark of Ara Tokatlian’s conundrum of tenor sax, Andean woodwinds and moog, interspersed with jazz-fusion, glimpses of latin-funk and randomly popping electronics. All of the above, scaffolded on a conceptual platform that puts in motion, evokes and seeks to simulate the intermingling of the elements of nature, by punctuating them in contrapuntal moments.

This much sought after by collectors album will appeal to the same extent to prog aficionados, latin funk crate-diggers, and prog-jazz crazies. But, above all, this is a re-release that intends to please Arco Iris’ core fans.
