Profile
Atoll were a French language prog band of the 70s. They were undoubtedly indebted to Ange, but also took in elements of Yes and many other influences, all combined into a style uniquely recognizable as Atoll. Lead singer André Balzer was a founding member, and guitarist Christian Béya was with the band during their most notable years.
