Madura was a 1970s rock/fusion band from Chicago, United States. After the break up of Bangor Flying Circus (1969), Alan DeCarlo and Hawk Wolinski formed Madura. Only one personal change was made: drummer Michael Tegza was replaced with one of the best renowned drummers in the world: Ross Salomone.David “Hawk” Wolinski, previous Shadows of Knight member, Alan DeCarlo and Ross Salomone recorded two albums produced by the Chicago producer James William Guercio. Hawk Wolinski later became a member of Rufus and Chaka Khan, and a successful producer and songwriter. Alan DeCarlo and Ross Salomone both appeared on Chicago keyboard player Robert Lamm’s 1975 solo album “Skinny Boy,”.
Madura can be seen and heard live on a short concert scene in J.W. Guercio’s movie Electra Glide in Blue (1973) playing a part of “Free From the Devil”. This is also included on the soundtrack from the movie. David Wolinski also appears as an actor in the movie, playing the part of “David, the VW bus driver.”
The band’s name “Madura” was inspired by the Meenakshi temple in Madurai. Their second album (simply named II), recorded in 1972 and released early 1973 before the band split and each one of the members took their own road.
