  • about this album

    Located at Spain’s southernmost point, the town of Tarifa is so close to Morocco that the sounds of the morning prayers can be heard drifting across the Straight of Gibraltar. Radio Tarifa's debut album incorporates both Spanish and African elements for a musical meeting point between the two cultures to “reinvent the heritage of pre-inquisition Spain” (New York Times).
