Product description

Product Description

Released in 1996 and translated as 'Algerian Rumba', Radio Tarifa's startling debut is an exploration of the traditions of Spanish-Arabian music that creates a multi-cultural fusion of old and new. Recorded in group founder Fain Duenas' one-track home studio, 'Rumba Argelina' features instruments as diverse as bazouki, accordion and oboe against a rippling percussive backdrop.

Authenticity is a tricky construct in pop music. In Rumba Argelina, guitarist and composer Fain Dueñas, wind player Vincent Molino, and vocalist Benjamin Escoriza, the core of the Spanish group Radio Tarifa, blend traditional North African music, flamenco, and a dash of rhythms from the New World, most notably Cuba, with a contemporary pop sensibility. The results sound surprisingly organic--even when some of the mixes take disorienting turns. "Oye China" suggests a son or guajira--until an accordion and a mysterious wind instrument (bansuri?) come in. When the song turns again, however, it evokes a vallenato. "Soledad" alludes to flamenco but also to Brian Eno. Then again, as Dueñas & Co. define it, this is border music, the music of an imaginary radio station in Tarifa, the southernmost point in Spain. What it suggests depends on your point of reference--but leave that for musicologists. Most important, Rumba Argelina is a delightful, rich, sensual experience, armchair travelling at its best. --Fernando Gonzalez
