The band was formed early in 2013, when Tobias Pettersson and Mikael Ödesjö, former members of Kama Loka, recruited Dag Strömqvist and Jonas Berge for their early 70's progressive rock project. In the summer we went out to the countryside where Dag lived, a place called Agusa (really only a loose gathering of houses in the forest). We had an inspired long jam session there, and it was a perfect warm and sunny summer day, so of course we had to call the band Agusa! In the autumn we went into the studio to record our first record, Högtid, that was released on vinyl and digital media early in 2014.
After a handful of gigs during the winter, Dag decided to leave us to travel around India for a while. We auditioned a number of drummers, and eventually asked Tim Wallander from Magic Jove to join us.
In the beginning of 2015, we went into Studio Möllan again to record our second album, planned for release late spring/early summer 2015. We asked a friend of ours, Jenny Puertas, to record some flutes, and we liked it so much that we asked her to become a part of the band! We had our first gig with Jenny in March 14th, and we think it was a really good gig!
