Magma (Musical group)


  • [Magma is a French progressive rock band founded in Paris in 1969 by classically trained drummer Christian Vander, who claimed as his inspiration a "vision of humanity's spiritual and ecological future" that profoundly disturbed him. In the course of their first album, the band tells the story of a group of people fleeing a doomed Earth to settle on the planet Kobaïa. Later, conflict arises when the Kobaïans--descendants of the original colonists--encounter other Earth refugees.] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magma_%28band%29
