Càlic - Terres de mar

In 1995 Càlic, a group from the Catalan speaking community of Alghero in the Sardinian NorthWest, recorded their second album, Terres de mar. Though not a major release, it was easily available outside their own island and made a good impact on the public. In 1998 they recorded Attinde (more on this record in the near future), then disbanded to resurface some times later with a fourth record, La Cançò catalana a Sardenya, again with a regional distribution only.
Core of the group were Claudio Sanna, who sang in Algherese and Mariano Piras, who sang in Sardinian.
