In 1973, Vladimir Kragic Patak and Nenad Bego Lesh was asked to help "Roxy Tarot Band" in concert. Their virtuous guitar player Savannah Lusha, inspired by "Mahavisnu Orchestra", "Return to forever" and Miles Davis works, had his own original music ideas, but that seems to be above his current group's abilities, so he establish a nucleus of new band with Kragic and Bego. Few months later, Ivelic and Sabo join them, and band starts with their rare but atractive concert activities. In 1974 they managed recording of few demo tapes, but lack of interest between publishers result in frequent personal changes. In 1978, Bego was asked to join "Pro Arte" tour, and he also leave the band. Few years later, tired of playing commercial stufs, Lusha move to Africa which results in disbandance of the best jazz-rock formation from Split ever. Even without published music, band become legendary and almost all of members are very famous musicians today.
