Profile
Imán, Califato Independiente, also known as simply Imán, was a Spanish progressive rock band formed in 1976 in Madrid. Iñaki Egaña (bass, vocals) got together with Manuel Rodriguez (guitar, previously with Goma) and Kiko Guerrero (drums), initially as a trio, then adding Marcos Mantero (keyboards) for the recording of their first album. Personnel changes followed, including the departure of founding member Egaña, and the band continued until the mid-80s, releasing a second album in 1980. Members of the band have reunited intermittently since then.
