Congreso - "Terra Incognita" {Chile} [1975] (Psychedelic Folk Rock)

Congreso is a Chilean collective that fuses indigenous rhythms, jazz harmonies, and contemporary music. From 1969 through 1993, eleven of their thirteen LPs achieved Gold Album status in Chile.(allmusic)
Excellent Chilean progressive band with a big sound, some influence from the melodic side a-la early Genesis, but an equal influence from their own ethnic folk heritage, such so they come off sounding very unique yet accessible. Many albums. Vocals in Spanish. Start with their double-live En Vivo.(gepr.net) Maybe the most known band outside of Chile with Inti-Illimani. Melodies may make you feel like you are in a dream.
