Yezda Urfa was an American progressive rock band founded in the fall of 1973. The band recorded two albums before breaking up in the spring of 1981. The band's music is currently distributed by Syn-phonic. The name Yezda Urfa comes from Yazd, the capital of Yazd Province in Iran and Urfa, a city in south-eastern Turkey. The band came across these names while leafing through the dictionary, looking for a band name. Yazd was changed to Yezda to ease pronunciation. Yezda Urfa blends influences from Yes and Gentle Giant into wonderful, fast-paced, high-energy progressive rock. Break-neck tempos, changing time signatures, and diverse instrumentation are hallmarks of their sound. Although they played and recorded between 1973 and 1981 they didn't release any albums, aside from a demo album in 1975 called Boris.
