Kaipa is a Swedish progressive rock musical group.

History[edit]

The band was originally formed under the name Ura Kaipa by Hans Lundin (keys) and Tomas Eriksson (bass).[1] Roine Stolt joined Kaipa as their guitarist when he was 17. In 1974, shortly after they had cut the "Ura" from the name of the band, they released their self-titled debut album. Stolt went on to form The Flower Kings. Kaipa reunited for 2002's Template:Notes from the Past (Kaipa album). Stolt quit Kaipa after Mindrevolutions, but the band has continued without him.

In 2014 three of the original members Roine Stolt, Ingemar Bergman and Tomas Eriksson re-grouped under the name Kaipa DaCapo to play the old music from the first three 70's albums as well as brand new music. New members of the band are Mikael Stolt, brother of Roine, on vocals and guitar and renowned Swedish musician Max Lorentz on keyboards. In 2015 the band toured Japan, Canada, Germany and their native Sweden. Recording of a brand new album will begin in june 2016 with release in september followed by an extended European and Scandinavian tour in the autumn.
