Profile
Saturnia is a psychedelic rock band from Portugal, founded in 1996 by multi-instrumentalist Luis Simões. Originally intended to be a communal art project where friends of several artistic professions such as literature, photography, design and music, would come and input. One of these people was Filipe Homem, then a publicity designer, who, with Luis Simões, named the project. The name came from the merge between several sources: the Saturnia butterfly, the planet Saturn and saturnalia, a natural/ecological, spacey/cosmic and hedonistic concept.
