Arbatel – Sumerios
Sumerios is Arbatel’s superior second CD. Opera-trained Rosario Maza joined as lead vocalist. Her vocals are often wordless or spoken word; there are no typical pop vocals, and the music is heavily instrumental. There is a strong resemblance to Il Balletto di Bronzo’s famous Ys album and to Le Orme’s Contrappunti, the latter itself influenced by ELP, and Arbatel add an original flavor to it all.
