MANEIGE is probably the Quebec band that epitomizes best the Quebec Prog boom from 74 to 79. Their music are probably one of the best example of what Fusion music can be by blending in classical and folk elements together with jazz tones the whole thing having a very progressive rock ideal and could also fit the chamber rock style. Their style can only be really compared to other Quebecois group as SLOCHE and OPUS-5. Taken from ProgArchives

It reminds me of Samla Mammas Manna with these tiny bells percussions. This is really worth listening too!
Thank you so much for advising us!

Delicate and pretty, but powerful. Proggy, pastoral and endlessly listenable. Marimbas evoke Zappa a bit, but not too much. This isn't absurdist at all. Well worth your time.
