I guess we should mention the so-called Andalusian rock or early flamenco-rock. So we go to the 1970's.

* Triana. Abre la puerta ("Open the Door", 1975) and Quiero contarte ("I Want to Tell You", 1979):



Una historia ("A Story") and El lago ("The Lake", 1974):



* Mezquita. Dame un beso ("Kiss Me", 1979) and Desde que somos dos ("Since We Are Two", 1979):

^ Haha, don't worry too much about getting genres correct - I'm pretty bad at it too. This album, for instance, is definitely prog, it's definitely from around the world, because Avora Di Carlla is a Brazillian band. Is it prog folk? I'm not so sure, but it is very good, imo, with some beautiful keyboard and violin passages:-

Anyone remember this thread?

I'm bumping it to add a wonderful album which fits right in imo. It's the self-titled instrumental album by Russian band Firyusa, which is by turns busy and beautiful. I'm having some trouble getting the YouTube clip to open, but to guys like grindy, Neapolitan, Frownland and Psy-Fi, I would say that it's well worth checking out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzs4lD47Aa8&t=1113s



Originally recorded in 1979, it was re-released this year:-

Spoiler for album facts from bandcamp:
When fans of jazz-rock and vinyl diggers-detectives start talking about some of the most desirable, but at the same time the rarest and most difficult to find LPs from the former Soviet republics, they would point to Firyuza. This LP has a beautiful title, as well as an attractive front cover design featuring seven stately male figures dressed in traditional outfits.

Soviet Grail presents an extended and official self-titled vinyl and CD reissue of a Turkmen jazz-rock and folk-rock ensemble Firyuza led by Dmitry Sablin.

It took many years for us to put this puzzle together. During this time, we’ve been communicating not only with the original band members, but also with their close ones, in order to understand and transcribe the history of the band’s genesis, and the story of making of this band’s only album, later on to become a true landmark of its epoch. It’s true when they say that “music’s like eternity, and our lives are like a twinkling of an eye”. 40 years later Firyuza’s album proves just that.

This reissue was prepared on classic 140g black vinyl with an updated full-color glossy cover, it also features a multi-page (!) insert with archival photos, interviews with band members, information on the band in Russian and English. The source material for the mastering was a thoroughly restored audio recording. The circulation of this reissue is 250 copies.

Soviet Grail would like to express gratitude to Ivan Vasilyevich Sablin (brother of the Firyuza ensemble’s leader), Igor Gordeev (original lineup drummer), and Alexander Sergeyevich Niyachenko (bass player), for their active assistance in preparing this reissue, and also - for furnishing memoir documents and archival photos; as well as to Vasily Ostroumov (DJ Bazil) for providing prep work, his insights, and musical archeological research documents, and for coordinating communication between band members.

Here's a bit of 70's psych/prog-folk/rock from Bogotá, Colombia...

^ Yes, that's pretty good Psy-Fi: some nice songs. Maybe more pop than prog, but who's counting?

I was so surprised that this thread had no mention about Comus band. Per my understanding, much of the users in here know it quite well, so just to make it right, I put the song below.

Thanks for looking in, Sir Cactoos - how are you doing?

Yes, Comus are mentioned in various places here - a very innovative band. Strictly speaking, because they sing in English, they turn up (briefly) in a companion thread to this one:-

"Prog Folk from the Anglosphere": https://www.musicbanter.com/prog-psy...glosphere.html

In this thread we've been putting "foreign language" prog folk, but of course what is foreign all depends on where you are from!

And while I'm here, how about some Altan Urag?

Hello again, Lisnaholic! Happy to see you again!

I believe Comus is well known band within whole Misic Banter comunity, nevertherless I was not able to spot it in this threat, specifically dedicated to them, as it refers to prog folk around world, not only out of English language. Besides, Comus actually IS foreign language band to me.

I heard Altan Urag's album once, maybe twice, yet I take them as a way better pioneers of Mongolian folk rock music than, in my opinion, over-hyped "The HU" band (still, I don't say I dislike them). The more Asian prog-folk in here, the better.

But European one is good, too. Below, self-titled album of Ksi??yc (eng. "The Moon") band from Poland, released in 1996. In some way, it resembles Comus in terms of the atmosphere.

^ I agree, Sir Cactoos. By coincidence, I came across a couple of The HU tracks and didn't really like them at all: too much basic, thumping music for me. I noticed that both tracks seemed to be linked to movies or video games, so I guess someone likes them!

^ Thanks for posting this beautiful album. I enjoyed it much more than Comus frankly.

And here's an obscure gem of French prog-folk, which you might enjoy. It jumps around a little in style and language, but that doesn't really disrupt the leisurely, relaxed pace of the album:
