Profile
Ruphus was a Norwegian rock band of the 70s, one of that country's most prominent bands during its time. On their first album, the group distinguished themselves by the presence of two powerful vocalists, male and female. Personnel changes were frequent, and their style turned towards jazz-rock, leading to great popularity in Germany. The band lasted until 1981, and has reunited from time to time for one-off performances.
