This is an experience of the Argentine musician Aldo Pinelli and his different projects: Habitat, Invernalia or his solo works, about a fusion of progressive, ambient, Celtic and ancient music. His La Niña Y El Príncipe (The Girl And The Prince) is the new and sixth album from Hábitat.
With great admiration for Italian progressive rock, Habitat sings in Spanish great classics by Premiata Forneria Marconi, Le Orme, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Celeste and Fiaba, as well as a bonus track composed by themselves.
Argentinian outfit Hábitat which first and foremost is the creative vehicle of composer and multi-instrumentalist Aldo Penelli, can trace it’s history back to 1984 when they made a few select live performances. Three years later a new version of the band would appear, play a few concerts but then disappear again.
But in 1994 this band was reassembled, and this time for a longer spell. They recorded rearranged editions of their old material and issued it as the demo tape Historias Olvidadas in 1997, and a CD version with additional live tracks followed in 1998. Three years later Baul Repleto De Sugerencias followed. This CD and featured new material, noticably darker in mood than the compositions found on their initial release. It would take five more years before their next effort Puente appeared, an album described by the band themselves as their most powerful production so far.
