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 a so 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 debutalbum "Flight of Fancy" in September 2011.
Kaarel Tamra (keyboards) 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!"
