LE ORME were born in 1966 in Marghera, but only on 1968 they have reached their first record success (“Senti l’estate che torna“), after the entry of Michi Dei Rossi and later of Tony Pagliuca, coming from the dissolved group of HOPOPI.
Of their long and prolific career we highlight: two gold records, a record critics award, a Tour in England, the collaboration with Peter Hammill, the recordings in the recording studios of Los Angeles, London, Paris and the release of the first live Italian album.
Their discography consists of 22 albums, several singles plus an endless series of compilations, thus remaining at the top of the charts for many years.
LE ORME have been, and still are, one of the most important Progressive groups on the Italian and world music scene. In recent years they have held concerts in Los Angeles (PROG FEST), San Francisco, Quebec City (PROG EAST), Mexico City (MEX PROG), Mexicali (Mex) (BAJA PROG FEST), Buenos Aires Prog (Argentina), Rio de Janeiro (RARF PROG FEST), Macaè (Rio) and Chihuahua (Mex), Barcelona (THE TIANA PROG ROCK FESTIVAL), Bethlehem in Pennsylvania (NEARFEST), Montreal (FMPM PRO FEST), Tokyo (ITALIAN PRO FEST), Verviers (Belgium ) (PROG66MEETING).
An important opportunity to pay homage to a great classic of Italian prog, one of the first examples and the first with the three -way formation, that has characterized the group for many years.
From their biography we read: “1971 – In the spring they record an avant-garde album for the Italian market and thanks to the massive radio promotion of the program PER VOI GIOVANI by Paolo Giaccio and conducted by Carlo Massarini, success is immediate. The album is called: “Collage” ”
