Estructura has the unique distinction of being the first Venezuelan prog band. Even more amazing is the fact that they came around when progressive rock was on the decline.
They were formed in 1977 by David Maman (keyboards, voice, main composer), Antonio Rassi (lead guitar, composer), Agni Mogollón (bass, voice, composer), Domenico Prioretti (drums, vocals), Walton de Jongh (special percussion, effects), Marisela Perez (lead vocals), and Maria Eugene Ciliberto (rhythmic and acoustic guitar). Their first album, "Más Allá De Tu Mente" (Beyond Your Mind), was very much like Rick Wakeman's "Journey to the Center of the Earth." It had two pieces, each taking up an album side.
Although like Wakeman’s album it also features a narrator, the structure (no pun intended) of the music is completely different. At 65 minutes, it is one of the longest vinyl recordings to be made in Venezuela. One thing that characterized most bands of the Venezuelan symphonic prog scene is the addition of Latin-American elements to their British prog oriented sound (the best example of this is Vytas Brenner) and Estructura is no exception.
