Embryo : Jbn Battuta 1994

Embryo is a musical collective from Munich which has been active since 1969, although its story started in the mid-1950s in Hof where Christian Burchard and Dieter Serfas met for the first time at the age of 10.

One of the most original and innovative Krautrock bands , Embryo fused traditional ethnic music with their own jazzy space rock style.

It was one of the most important German jazz-rock bands during the 1970s and has also been described as "the most eclectic of the Krautrock bands."
Over their 30-year existence, during which Christian Burchard has been the only consistent member, the group has traveled the world, playing with hundreds of different musicians and releasing over 20 records.

Originally a jazzy space rock group, Embryo was formed in 1969 in Munich , Germany , by former R&B and jazz organist Christian Burchard .

In Morocco, the band was fascinated by the different tonal scales used by Moroccan musicians, profoundly shaping the group's music to come.
( telling :

We Keep On, released in 1973, was the most successful album in the group's career. However, after Surfin' (1974) and Bad Heads and Bad Cats (1975), Burchard decided the band was moving in too commercial a direction and led them on an eight-month excursion to India, where they met local musicians. )

The band then took off on a two-year journey through the Middle East, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, during which the band's bus broke down in Tehran in the middle of a civil war in 1981.

  1. Έτσι μπράβο! Τώρα μιλάς σωστά... (όχι ότι πριν υπήρχε κάτι το επιλήψιμον). Θα πας μεθαύριο στον Roland? Εγώ δυστυχώς κωλύομαι, ο Αργύρης πάντως θα πάει, απ' όσο ξέρω.

    1. Ναι,θα πάω αύριο στον Paul Rolland.
