Popol Vuh

What does band name Popol Vuh mean - mayan-calendarKraut rockers from Bavarian capital Munich, founded by keyboard player Florian Fricke (1944-2001).

Fricke and his band turned their backs to electronic music in the early 1970s.

They did that so rigorously that they did not even refrain from selling Fricke's Moog III Synthesizer to Klaus Schulze.

The second hand gear apparently was no scrap heap material just yet, given the successes that Schulze achieved with it.

As band name the Bavarian musicians chose the title of a sixteenth-century manuscript which deals with the mythology of a Mayan people known as the Quiché.

Active: 1970-2001, DEU
