Based in Italy, it is led by producers, songwriters, and musicians Luciano Ninzatti (guitars), Stefano Pulga (keyboards), and Matteo Bonsanto, often with deep r'n'b vocals from Glen White.
They released three early 1980s albums, scoring dancefloor smash hits with "I'm Ready" (1980), "It's A War" (1980), and "Can't Hold Back (Your Loving)" (1981). Although Kano is considered the starter of italo-disco by many, it also served as a bridge to electro and breakdance later in the 1980s.
