Fandango Duende y Taraf is a space-and-time synthesis of Mudejar music, which stems from the legacy of Al Andalus and the common roots of the Flamenco-Andalusian, Arab-Andalusian and Mexican musical traditions.

Fandango Duende y Taraf is made up of four exceptional musicians, each steeped in different traditions, whose combined talent gave rise to Las Tres Orillas del Atlántico (The Three Shores of the Atlantic), a CD that reflects and summarizes the playful and mystic essences of the fandango, which follows the son jarocho tradition of Veracruz, Mexico, the duende of the Flamenco-Andalusian tradition, and the taraf, stemming from the Arab-Andalusian tradition.

The result is an interweaving of Afro-mestizo and Arab-Andalusian sounds, which are strongly linked to Mexican music, whose roots have drawn from and been enriched by different influences throughout its history
