Wishbone by Tantra
Happy October! In order to start this Autumn season disco proper here is an epic song by Italo Disco group Tantra. It was the master mind of Celso Valli and it became hugely popular at the famous New York gay palace The Saint during the late '70s and early '80s. Their most well known track was the equally epic "Hills Of Katmandu". "Wishbone" was similar in formula to "Hills" however this one had a more spacey, mystical Indian flavor synthesizers with a unique bass lick and those cryptic vocals giving the song a mysterious vibe. Tantra released a full length LP called The Double Album in 1980 and clearly made them pioneers of the Italo sound that later dominated the dance floors in the mid to late '80s. Enjoy
