This multi-racial band, which has been around the Malaysian music scene for several years now, was first introduced to the public as a rap-core band in the compilation album titled Family Day after being approached by recording company, Posse Records. The band later produced the Funk Core Rap album, Have a Nice Jaywalk, which was released under Posse Records. The highly enthusiastic album resulted in Prana being nominated for the AIM 2001 awards for Best New English Artiste.
Two years later, now former bassist, Pablo Torrejon, came back to Kuala Lumpur after a brief return to his native country, Chile, to finish Pranas sophomore album under the bands own independent label, Laguna Records. Recording of the bands second album got underway at their own recording studio, the Greenhouse Studio, set-up in Ampang, Malaysia.
The bands vibes come from a mixture of different types of musical influences and cultures. Prana write highly enthusiastic songs that deal with interesting places and fascinating people that they meet in their lives. Pranas musical influence would be reggae, funk, metal and drum & bass only combining these all into their own style creating Greenhouse Effect. The band spent three months creating the songs and recording at the same time. Some of the tracks on the Greenhouse Effect album were mixed and mastered in Los Angeles. Pranas second album, Greenhouse Effect has since been released under Laguna Records in 2003 and distributed by Universal Music Malaysia.
After much success with the Greenhouse Effect album, Prana set forth to release their thrid full studio album. In the November 2005, Pranas latest album was released. The release of Disc 03 came after a major line-up change. Pranas vocalist Eric Ruffin left the band in early 2005 resulting in guitarist Jamir Adiong stepping up to tak over the roll as lead vocalist. This was also met by a new addition to the band. Former Lyme member, Azman Ali, then joined Prana, replacing Pablo on bass.
The album, quite different from the previous two, incorporates a blend of all the influences brought together by the changes and maturity of the band, giving you the amazing sound of Prana today.
