Has anyone heard of a band called Magma ? They were a French band in the
70's. Their songs are in a language, Kobian, created by the band's leader
Christian Vander. Their albums tell the story of the colonization of
another planet, and subsequent dealings of the colony with Earth, and
Kobian is the language of the colony. The sound of the music can only be
described as unique.
Recordings are hard to find in the US. Most music stores don't devote much
shelf space to bizare defunct French bands (go figure).
Because of the language I thought someone on the list might know of a
source for their recordings. I've heard they might be easier to find in
If you know where I could find them let me know.
