BIOGRAPHY

With four studio albums and a career spanning twelve years, Aisles have become South America’s most acclaimed prog act of the decade. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz and world music illustrates the band’s uniquely eclectic approach. The group has played in South America, Europe and Mexico, and their albums have been published in Europe, the Americas and Japan.

Their debut album, “The Yearning” was released in August 2005. Four years later, their second record, ‘In Sudden Walks’, was nominated for Best Foreign Record in the Italian Prog Awards, and the group was invited to open the 11th Progressive Rock festival Crescendo in France. Their third release, ‘4.45 AM’ (2013) was widely acclaimed in the world and was chosen among the best albums of the year in a number of specialized publications. ‘Hawaii’ (July, 2016), their fourth recording and first double CD, was called a “masterpiece” and named one of the albums of the year by media outlets such as Prog (England), Neoprog (France), Raw Ramp (England) and Chile’s premiere rockmagazine, Rockaxis.
