MALAAVIA is a new Italian band. Their music is symphonic prog in the Italian tradition with some Arabic and
modern experimental sounds. This makes the music a fusion of different expressions. The closest
comparisons from the seventies scene could be bands like OSANNA and SAINT JUST. Lino Vairetti from
OSANNA makes a guest appearance in one track in their debut album “Danze D’incenco”. This album has
strong keyboard work by Oderigi Lusi and the vocal sections between the male singer & guitarist Pas
Scarpato and female singer & flautist Solimena Casoria are especially delicate.
