Cal biography
Until today the page of CAL had no bio or photo (Well, the photo is still hard to find), something that can be easily explained by the lack of information even for a person as me who obviously speaks Spanish, but something had to be found, even if it's not too much.

The success of TRIANA inspired many other Spanish Groups to incorporate Flamenco elements to Symphonic Prog, and one of them is CAL, a band from Sevilla formed by Alberto Toribio on the keyboards (Former member of Goma), Pepe Fernandez (Guitar and vocals), Francisco Muñoz (Bass and vocals) and the drummer Juanjo Muñoz who also sung on occasions.

Between March and May of 1980 the band recorded their self titled debut and only album with the collaboration of Maruja Cortes in "Mujer del Sur"

Their style can be only catalogued as Symphonic Andaluz Prog except "Colgao I y II" which has some reminiscences of Pink Floyd.

Nothing more can be found about the band, when they disbanded or what was the destiny of the members, but they have left us an album that because the massive use of Mellotron and the fantastic Flamenco influences makes of CAL something worth to listen.

Cal Symphonic Prog

Review by bhikkhu
Special Collaborator Symphonic Prog Team

4 stars If you are interested in prog that sounds of Spain, this is definitely for you. These guys take directly from the classic Spanish tradition. So much so, that I imagine them having a flamenco dancer with them at all times. Now, it is not all traditional, they do rock it up, and even incorporate some jazz elements. But that rhythm is hardly ever missing. Only on the last number do they just go for straight "rock-style" prog.

CAL's musicianship is top notch, and the composition is very solid. They don't get too crazy, but there is some experimentation. Don't look for exceeding complexity either. The beauty of this is prog meeting Spanish traditional. It will also keep your foot tapping. The music is very engaging. I would call this a 3.5 star album, but I will be generous and round it up to four. It's not earth shattering, but it is extremely enjoyable. The fact that it is such a rarity will also add prestige to your collection.
