Kano was a music project formed in Milan (Italy) in 1979 by producers/musicians Luciano Ninzatti, Stefano Pulga and Matteo Bonsanto. Kano was one of the earliest music groups to usher in a new style of dance music called Italo disco.
Kano’s debut single was the 1980 international hit “I’m Ready”, combining elements of 1970s disco, funk and R&B while extensively using synthesizers and percussive handclaps as well as raw-processed and vocoderized vocals. Kano’s self-titled debut album also included “It’s a War”, “Ahjia”, “Now Baby Now” and the instrumental track “Cosmic Voyager”. “I’m Ready” peaked at #21 on the U.S. Black Singles chart, while “It’s a War” and “Ahjia” were also big hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the U.S., reaching #2 for five weeks.
