Garybaldi os an Italian heavy psychedelic progressive band of the early 70s. The group was rooted in the earlier Gleemen and later became Bambibanda e Melodie. The Garybaldi sound involved complex lengthy semi-instrumental tracks, fronted by the Jimi Hendrix inspired guitar of "Bambi" P.N. Fossati and his unusual/unique singing style. The 70s band made one original single and two albums, then regrouped in 1990 as a trio, remaining active until Fossati's death in 2014. The band has carried on since without him.
