The group consisted of Rob Papen, Ruud van Es and Peter Kommers. Later in 1982, the group scored another hit called Sol. The three members of the band also performed under the name Peru. Nova was the "commercial" branch of Peru. After Nova's success, the group went on as Peru. Using this name, the group had another modest hit in the Dutch Hitparades with the song "Africa". Rob Papen and Ruud van Es are still active in producing music, albeit no longer under the names Nova or Peru.

The song Aurora originated as a theme from a Peru song called "Sons of Dawn". Willem van Kooten, former director of the record company Red Bullet, discovered the song and, with help from producer Chris Pilgram, helped make it a number-1 hit in the Netherlands and the definitive breakthrough for both Nova as Peru.

Nova - Best Of Nova

Artist: Nova
P: 1991
This is the Best of compilation out of the 3 Vinyl releases out of the early 80s.
The music is unbelieveable catchy and a little more melodic than the other project by the same artists: Peru. So if you like Peru, you will like Nova. All played on analogue equippment. Synthsmusic at its best.
