news & reviews

  • about this album

    Recorded over two years, Temporal, the follow-up to Radio Tarifa’s debut, Rumba Argelina, gave Musical Director Faín Dueñas the opportunity to focus more deeply on flamenco music, in addition to Sephardic and traditional music from Andalucia, Castilla, Galicia, and Sanabria. Dueñas explains: “Temporal is more of a concept record, whereas Rumba Argelina indicated paths to be followed. With Temporal, I wanted to define my ideas more and explore deep flamenco.”

    The unexpected success of Rumba Argelina led Radio Tarifa to evolve from a part-time studio band to a regular touring group. Since their sold-out concert debut at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in 1996, the band has toured throughout the world, including a shared bill with the late Malian guitar legend Ali Farka Toure at Royal Festival Hall in London.

    Guitarist and percussionist Faín Dueñas formed Radio Tarifa with singer Benjamín Escoriza and Arabic flute player Vincent Molina. The band takes its name from Cape Tarifa, the southernmost tip of Spain and the closest point to Africa. Dueñas describes Cape Tarifa as “a balcony to the Mediterranean.”
