Kano is an Italian concept-project set up in 1979 in Milan by Luciano Ninzatti, Stefano Pulga and Matteo Bonsanto. Trio which will choose as leader of the group the singer of West Indian origin Glen White.
The group delivered their first big-caliber track at the start of the 1980s with the single "I'm ready". Title taken from the eponymous album which was released the same year and which will produce other interesting singles like "It’s a war", "Now baby now" and other "Ahjia".
New album "New-York cake" a year later in 1981, album which produced a first hit with the title "Baby not tonight" but also, and especially "Can’t hold back (Your lovin)". Single which will give the group its first world-class hit.
But it is above all the following album "Another life" and especially the single bearing the same name that will bring fame and fortune in 1983 to the trio. The single is a real worldwide hit and will ignite all Dancefloor on the planet that year.
The adventure will go no further but will at least have had the merit of producing one of the most iconic Dance titles of the decade. Isn't that the main thing ...

1980 ... first title and...already first success. This is called an ideal start to say the least. Now it remains to be confirmed that it was not just a fluke ...
1980 ... for confirmation, we will have to be a little patient. The titles will follow one another but without achieving sales scores that would allow them to be classified. At least during this year 1980 ...
1980 ... they are far from being ridiculous but it will be necessary to raise the level of playing a little to hope to produce a first single of big caliber ...
1980 ... the group will produce no less than 5 titles that year. With a very low level of success except for the first title. Can and must do better !
1980 ... the last title of the year 1980. A year of breaking in, one might say. It remains to produce THE title that will change everything ...
1981 ... production of titles is now drastically reduced. But as they say, quality is better than quantity. And it starts to pay off with this title ...
1982 ... small air gap at the start of 1982 but nothing to worry about at this stage. Especially when you see what is on the horizon ...
1982 ... that's it, this time will be the right one. At least for the heating of the rocket engines. Because for the big take-off, it's just after ...
1983 ... and the big takeoff, there it is ! The group will deliver here quite simply one of the biggest dance hits of the decade and ignite all the Dancefloor on the planet at the same time. With the key to a direct ticket for posterity of course. HU-GE !
1983 ... the production of titles had slowed down considerably but started again on the rise in this new year. With very good surprises and inevitably less good ...
1983 ... the first title unfortunately won all the votes. Anything that comes out after him will only have a very limited level of success ...
1983 ... anyway, no title has been of poor quality and the whole really holds up. Isn't that the main thing ...?
1983 ... one last title to close a great adventure which produced one of the most emblematic titles of the decade. Largely enough to deserve our respect as they say ...
