Band biography:

X-Panda is a progressive metal and fusion band from Estonia. The band is known for their concerts full of emotion and power - pure pleasure for people who like to dream, imagine and feel.  The music of X-Panda will move both experienced musicians and just music lovers. Their creations are full of surprises and changes of mood, sounds, complex rhythmical characters, rhythmic illusions, jazz-fusion chord progressions, mean and evil guitar riffs and in all this one can also find heroic film music melodies that you can sing along to.
X-Panda tries to expand their musical horizon and knowledge by creating technically and musically more entertaining music for themselves in the first place. 
 
The band was founded as a one time project for an original song competition in april 2009.  They ended up winning the competition with a song "Dickybirds". The feedback for such unusual music approach was extremely positive, so they decided to continue as a band. X-Panda has won several competitions, including the title Noortebänd 2010, which is one of the two biggest band competitions held in Estonia. 

X-Panda released their debut album ´´Flight of Fancy´´ in september 2011 
                                                                                        
Kaarel Tamra about X-Panda:
 "I think that it is unusual that four people can share the same musical interests.
 It is so cool that sometimes  when beginning to describe a particular riff or pattern, they already know what to do without me even saying it. I find that really rare  and special. We have a really good chemistry and we are all such good friends. The band is like a summer holiday -everybody is anxiously waiting for the rehearsals and concerts. They´re just so much fun, because we can do exactly what we want!"
