Bubbling under: En ese viento (Nexus)

The Argentinean symphonic prog rock band Nexus (image credit) is to my taste the best prog band to come from South America since Brazil's Bacamarte. Beautiful luscious prog, obviously influenced by the masters of the seventies (especially ELP and Genesis) but with sufficient own input - and singing in Spanish contributes to the original feeling. Their 2006 album Perpetuum Karma features their best song, the album closer En ese viento (In that wind). Inspired by ATOTT period Genesis, this song features dreamy passages and wonderful guitar and keyboard play. Absolutely brilliant.
