La FEM oggi

The project

FEM Prog Band is first of all something to believe in! It’s the willingness to 5 musicians (Giacomo Balzarotti – voice, Alberto Citterio - keyboards, Paolo Colombo – guitar, Marco Buzzi - bass; Emanuele Borsati - drums) to rediscover the sound of Progressive Rock of the 70s and to bring it back on the present music scene. The research for new sounds and the desire to create introspective music are the basis of this project.

"And such as Galileo Galilei or our Glagli, we go against the tide, sure to meet, sooner or later, eyes ready to see, and ears ready to listen!"


Currently, the FEM is working on:

- The concept album "Sulla bolla di sapone";


On May 5, 2012 was released Epsilon, the EP that officially opens the discography of the band.
