The Rafiralfiro project bridges the gap between the east and the west (a bit like Turkey, where one of the group members is from). Western electronic styles (breakbeat, electronica, dub and hip-hop) are layered up with sounds from all over the world. Rafael Aragon is the founder of the project, and his obsessive curiosity has him digging through everything from latin beats to oriental melodies, unearthing unique samples that he mixes, twists and polishes with a watchmaker's precision. Live performances are enhanced with a bassist and a drummer who bring added power and spirit to the electronic sound. Rafiralfiro's music is demanding but light-hearted, intelligent but down to earth, and overcomes musical language barriers with its lack of stylistic limitations.
