|Osanna: Italian progressive|
Osanna, are a progressive rock band of Naples, great Italian musicians, they have not had a great success in Italy, as P.F.M., or Banco, personally, I only remember the song "L'uomo", (The Man).
They also used costumes during their live, I was lucky enough to find on YouTube, of rare videos, just uploaded a member of Osanna, bassist Lello Brandi and I put in this short article.
Osanna, like many other groups of Italian progressive rock, have been more popular abroad than in Italy.

The progressive rock genre, has always been regarded with great suspicion, I can only imagine what he was saying the Italian public opinion Osanna, and their faces painted, or their music, so 'strange' ...
Of course, when Kiss became famous in America, I remember there was an uproar when they were playing in Italy, but were finally accepted.
I wish you a good listening to the music of Osanna, and of these video images with very rare and very interesting, to note the saxophonist, who can play two saxophones at once:
