The group is founded in Rome in 1996 by keyboards player Gianluca De Rossi and drummer Fabio Mociatti, together with bass player Stefano Proietti and singer Paolo Cedrone. The group gets its name from Taprobana, the ancient denomination of Ceylon Island (Sri-Lanka), where Tommaso Campanella set his The City of the Sun. With this line-up, between May and December, Taproban record their first demo-tape. The band is renovated in the spring of 1997, with drummer Valter Strappolini (Lamia) and experienced bassist-guitarist Roberto Pizzi (Libro di Gomma). The absence of an electric guitar player and the consequent prominence of the keyboards, however, recall the triangle formation of Emerson Lake & Palmer or Le Orme, creating a sound language that prefers instrumental parts rather than lyrical. Taproban second demo-tape is recorded between the 17th and 18th of January 1998, at L’Elefante Bianco studio in Rome. Once again, however, the group went towards a new break due to lack of enthusiasm and disagreement. After two years of inactivity, during which Gianluca De Rossi dedicates himself to the composition of new material and to the re-arrangement of the old one, the group reforms in July 2000 with the entrance of Davide Guidoni (Gallant Farm, The Far Side) on drums and percussions and Guglielmo Mariotti (Der Bleue Reider) on bass, 12 strings guitar, bass pedals and vocals. official biography from www.taproban.com Read more on Last.fm.
