Glissandro 70 was a Canadian Afrobeat band based in Toronto, Ontario.[1] Its members are Craig Dunsmuir[2][3] (a.k.a. Kanada 70, Guitarkestra) and Sandro Perri[4] (a.k.a. Polmpo Polpo), who play an blend of dance and experimental rock styles.[5]

History[edit]

Dunsmuir and Perri began by creating music for an audio weblog.[6] They continued to collaborate intermittently over a period of three years,[7] beginning in 2004, and released their self-titled five-track debut album on Constellation Records in 2006, to positive reviews.[5][8][9] Although the two musicians also play rock music together in another of Perri's bands, the musical style of this project is more dance-oriented.[10] The album appeared on the !earshot campus and community radio charts in April that year.[11]

Glissandro 70 also contributed a track, "Voices Are Your Best Friend", to the children's compilation album See You on the Moon!, released by Paper Bag Records.[12][13]
