RanestRane (that means “Strange Frogs”) is an Italian progressive rock band formed in Rome in 1998. RanestRane’s most distinctive feature is its live performance: the band composes and performs original lyrics and music, blending them with short excerpts from the movie, projected in the background. The original score is almost entirely replaced by the new soundtrack. The band re-elaborates the art film, thus producing a real Rock Opera.
We are proud to have RanestRane on board next year!
