Italian group formed in 1991 in Bologna, Italy, by the musicians Ciro Pagano (ex-member and founder of the Italian electro pop group Gaznevada, one of the most importants in the 80's) and Stefano Mazzavillani (musician and arranger of more famous italian pop-singers in the 80's)

In the beginning they collaborate with two importants DJs: Cirillo and DJ Ricci. They are involved in all the Datura productions from 1991 until 1995.

Datura were cool back in the day ie-early to mid 90's, their early stuff like yerba del diablo, eternity, devotion, el sueno featured vocals from Amparo Fidalgo otherwise known as the visionary voice.The lyrics were not so much sung as spoken which gave their tunes a very stylish, classy sound.
Datura very much had their own signature sound that was instantly recognizable, distinctive melodies,track structure and of course the use of sparse vocals, in short though if you have a thing for dance music with foreign vocals you would love Datura !!!
