Embryo

Led by drummer Christian Burchard, Embryo was part of the fertile fusion of new music coming from Munich in the late 60s. The band's roots were in jazz, first supporting Mal Waldron, while the 70s saw Charlie Mariano join up for several albums. The band then traveled east, absorbing Middle-Eastern, Arab and Indian music into their unique brand of fusion, releasing albums to this day. Other key members were Edgar Hoffmann and Roman Bunka.
