Genre that combines elements from Jazz, Western Classical Music, Rock and many others. Its homeland is England and arose in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its main features are the complexity of harmonies, arrangements and musical structure. The suites (songs divided in movements) are also a trademark, along with narrative and abstract lyrics. The genre was defined by groups like Genesis, King Crimson, Gentle Giant and Yes.
