Profile
Marco Ragni’s musical history dates back to 1975, when, at the age of six, he discovered his passion for music by asking for a Farfisa keyboard as a gift. His love of singing came later, fascinated by the vocal harmonies of the Beatles. At the age of 17, attracted by the California hippie scene of the late 60s and the sound of Pink Floyd and all progressive rock of 70s, he recorded his first tracks of psychedelic music, and his early records, including Kaleido(1987) and Illumination (1988). In 1990 he joined the band Deshuesada, which led to the recording of two albums of psychedelic pop and to several gigs in Italy from 1992 to 1998. In 2000 he was approached by the band Quartafila, which later changed its name to Heza. He recorded three studio albums with this group. From 2007 to the end of 2008 he played with the Mokers, a funk psychedelic rock band and recorded an album called Don't Forget the Music. In January 2009 he decided to officially launch his solo career, having gained sufficient experience in both music composition and singing.
