Corima - Quetzalcoati

SKU Soleil Zeuhl 36
A great 5 piece, who simply tore the house down at ProgDay in 2013 and were one of the stunning highlights of the festival. This is the music they played there. Hugely recommended!

I saw Corima about in 2008, but at the time, they were a duo and they were not as developed or as powerful as they are now. After I saw them, they moved to LA and added more members and developed their sound more.

Definitely not just a 'zeuhl' band, they are full-fledged worshippers at the church of Magma and if you are looking for great originality within the zeuhl framework, there are better places to look. Having said that, it's a great sound and Corima do it extremely well and with a definite flair. The comments below comparing them and their approach to zeuhl to Koenjihyakkei are pretty spot on. With this release they have quickly pole-vaulted themselves into the forefront of zeuhl bands.

Sergio Sanchez-Ravelo: drums, vocals
Francisco Casanova: keyboards, vocals
Andrea Itzpapalotl: violin, vocals
Patrick Shiroishi: saxophones, glockenspiel, vocals
Ryan Kamiyamazaki: bass, vocals

"Corima is a young US band playing...zeuhl music! The band formed a few years ago in Texas (!) before moving to LA as a duo and then recruiting new members. This is their second CD. Corima's music owes a lot to Magma, the album being a succession of personal ideas and heavy glimpses towards the master founder of the Zeuhl genre. The cosmogony is no longer Kobaïan but deals with the Mexican myth of Quetzalcoatl (the feathered-snake God) who (as the guide in MDK) talks to his people... In short, Corima gives us here an album which pays homage to Magma in a very festive way, taking an approach rather similar to Koenjihyakkei. Enjoy this vibrant album filled with enthusiasm and let’s hope that the band will have the possibility to show their Zeuhl passion on stage in front of US audiences."
