Radio Tarifa 'Rumba Argelina' 2xLP
Radio Tarifa’s classic breakthrough debut album ‘Rumba Argelina’, originally released on World Circuit in 1996, is regarded as a world fusion classic. Founded in the early 90’s, Radio Tarifa combined Flamenco, Arab-Andalusian music, Arabian music, Moorish music and other influences from the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. The band’s name is taken from Cape Tarifa, the southernmost tip of Spain and closest European point to Africa, where the local radio receives sounds from across the straits. An irresistible fusion of exotic melodies, it kicks in with the pattering of percussion and drums, undulating pipes and funky guitars, before the smoky flamenco-esque rumba voice of Escoriza grabs you and never lets go. The album has been remastered specially for this first ever LP release.
