Hailing from sun-bathed Alicante in the Spanish Levantine coast, Costa Blanca take the listener through a typical summer in the Mediterranean, from its blissful afternoons by the sea to galloping thunderstorms.

Somewhere in the shifting sands between jazz fusion and prog, Viaje a Prantia remains the sole recording of a band that became the epitome of the underground. Unruly, careless and lacking any kind of expectations - and yet, Costa Blanca left a lasting impression on those who saw them live.

A tale of what could have been, but just didn't happen: one of Spain's best jazz-rock bands of the 70s never had a proper breakthrough.
