Bellaphon • Neo-Prog (Japan)
Formed in 1981, this instrumental band from Japan who delivers a symphonic / melodic music, highly influenced by CAMEL, but some fusion passages can be found as well.
The band included Taiqui Tomiie , Toshihiro Tanaka and Mitsutaka Kaki who served time on the prog band Ain Soph. the keyboardist Mitsutaka Kaki is trying to keep the band alive currently, playing shows mainly, but as he states, this is a side occupation of the band members who are all doing this along their day jobs.
Their CD "Firefly" is an excellent piece of symphonic prog. The music sometimes sounds like CAMEL or AIN SOPH and KENSO because of its delicate and highly elaborated symphonism with a touch of virtuoso and elegant jazz-rock. Delphi contains unreleased tracks and some live recordings.
