Profile
Aurora Lunare was formed in 1978 near the city of Livorno by a group of friends with a common passion for music that they had been listening to for years: above all, ELP and Yes, but also Italian groups such as PFM, Banco, Le Orme, and Area. The band started out playing music by their idols, but after a period of apprenticeship, the band developed their own music and style, even adding some avant-guard touches. Unfortunately, the band never managed to make a professional recording during their initial period of activity. The band split in the early 80s, and reunited in 2007 with some lineup changes, and finally began recording their own material.
