KANO – Kano (1980)

Kano was a post-disco music project formed in 1979 by Italian-based producers/musicians Luciano Ninzatti, Stefano Pulga and Matteo Bonsanto. They were one of the first groups to usher in a style of dance music called Italo-Disco, a blend of 1970s disco and funk with more emphasis on synthesizers and other electronic instruments.
