On the summer solstice the members of Basanta enjoyed a magical sunset, toasted with wine, sang forgotten songs, pop and fairies shone. Such was the experience of that day that they decided to set up a band that gave voice to nature.The Basanta Panchami, a festivity of the Hindu tradition that welcomes the spring celebrating the awakening of a new life, was the inspiration to a band of young followers of the roots of the occultism and the work of Aleister Crowley (mentor of musicians like Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin) to baptize a project that seeks to recover a legacy that unfortunately never had relevance in our country. It is time to enjoy the benefits of the occultism, adapting its art and philosophy to our times.One summer night in El Puerto de Santa María, while the producer Paco Loco was working on the last mix, the member of Basanta started one of their pagan rituals, listening to their songs for the first time. The idea suddenly came up, as everyone has the gift of synesthesia, the album sounded in multiple colors, hence its title “Colorama” (C4Music, 2018).In just ten days, Sol, Azufre, Sal, Tierra and La Santa, with the collaborations of Paco Serén (Los Piratas) on the sitar and Rubén Suárez (Family Folks) on the mandolin, created the eleven songs of the album. LeonKa Kafre (PhD in Philosophy from Stanford University and alchemy student) listened to Colorama, deciphered the message and transformed it into the design of the album cover.
