The legendary prog rock French band will land its starship in Montreux. Active since 1969, the French band is the inventor of “zeuhl”, a breathtaking fusion of jazz, art rock, avant-garde and classical music. Led from the start by composer-drummer-singer Christian Vander, the group quickly made a name for itself with its innovative musical approach and cosmic stories sung in “Kobaïen”, an alien language they invented. More than forty years after their two concerts at the Festival – one at the Villeneuve swimming pool (1972) and the other at the Montreux Casino (1975) – Magma will perform for the first time at the Stravinski Auditorium.
