Felona e Sorona - Le Orme, 1973
Felona and Sorona: the story.:
Felona and Sorona is an album of progressive music of the Italian group "Le Orme". It was recorded in 1973.
It is a concept album centered on a very imaginative story, that of two imaginary planets called "Felona" and "Sorona". While Felona is illuminated by sunlight, Sorona is immersed in darkness.
Felona, the place we all want to live in and enjoy life, loves, friends and happy times. As every cloud has a silver lining, Felona has its antithesis; Sorona, the dark and murky side present in everyone of us.
The "history", in short, is: the inhabitants of the planet Felona live in peace and light, while Sorona is wrapped in eternal darkness. When the two worlds are connected, Sorona Felona travels to the joy, and Sorona Felona went to the decline.
In 1973, Charisma (the legendary British label of Genesis, Van Der Graaf, etc ...) will publish the English version of "Felona e Sorona" with texts by Peter Hammil.
The Orme begin a tour in England, reaching the major cities' of the United Kingdom.
