Wapassou

Profile
Unique symphonic / progressive rock band from Strasbourg, France, established in the early 70s. Their obscure eponymous debut LP was more psychedelic flavored, akin to Catharsis. After that they made a trilogy of albums, all involving long complex suites with guitar, violin, keyboards and female voice, exploring a mystical, classical hybrid all of their own, especially unusual for the lack of percussion. Further albums into the 80s were different again, blending pop and modern neo-prog styles.
