“The Spanish prog-rock quartet Imán, Califato Independiente has its origins at a convention, given by the meditation guru Maja-raj-ji, in the mid 1970s. Like genuine hippies, the musicians lived together in one house in El Puerto De Sta Maria, where Iman was founded.
In 1978, an eponymous debut album was released, followed two years later by Camino del Aguila... The music on their two albums sounds like jazz-rock meets Prog Andaluz, with the emphasis on jazz rock. There are wonderful, varied vintage keyboards (piano, synthesizers, string-ensemble, harpsichord, organ) and exciting interplay and duels between guitar and keyboards. In some songs the guitarist sounds like the Spanish twin-brother of Carlos Santana!
Almost every composition has more or less compelling Moorish undertones and one track is even entitled Tarantos del califato independiente (the title points at a strong rhythm in flamenco music). In my opinion, Iman represents a very exciting fusion of Prog Andaluz and jazz rock.”-DPRP

“Iman was a spanish progressive rock band and this first album ("Califato Independiente") is their best, in my opinion. Mostly instrumental with a very good musicianship. Symphonic keyboards and occasional nice Arabian echoes. Sometimes jazzy with enjoyable lead guitars solos.”-rym
