Secrets of "TARIFA": Where Music and Magic Collide in Blanco White's World!

One amazing album and one incredible life combine to encompass journeys, inspiration, and exploration of the world of music by Blanco White. Blanco White is a musician who literally absorbs the culture of countries, feels traditions in his soul, and learns instruments from the best masters. And the album "Tarifa" reflects his unique creative journey. 11 tracks were inspired by the southern coast of Spain, the province of Tarifa, where the eponymous album was created. In "Tarifa," Blanco White immerses the listener in smooth acoustic rhythms, weaving traditional Spanish music into them. There is something sensitive and intimate in this album that is captured between the notes and harmonies. In "Tarifa," like constellations, pictures come together on a skillfully crafted musical canvas. These pictures are filled with scenes, warm winds, the scent of the sea, events, and lives. I invite you to enjoy this magical experience with me. Close your eyes and get ready for the best moment in your life.

The album begins with a double track, divided into two parts, "Giordano's Dream, Pt. I" and "Giordano's Dream, Pt. II," completely changing the musical presentation and offering a truly unique sound. "Part I" starts with unexpected pop-synth sounds, and the vocals are soft and dreamy, translating the mood into melancholy and hypnotic meditation. Like moving through memories, "Part II" of the track begins with a cosmic sound, merging with folk rhythms, as if intertwining with Chinese traditional motifs and modern acoustic vocals. Blanco White works magic with sound, uniting multiple genres into one. I feel how this fusion of genres brings genuine enjoyment and interest to the music of "Tarifa."

In each track, the universe unfolds in a whirlwind of sounds and magic. I feel like a time traveler, gliding over the peaks of multidimensional trees in boundless mist. And now, as the sounds of the track "Tell Me That You Need Me" slowly immerse me in the environment of a dense, mysterious night, I feel my essence merging with the fire by the campfire. It's a place where lively guitar rhythms dance with light pop vocals, creating a magical symphony that fills me with hope and light. It's a true journey into the uncharted realms of sound.

The track "Tarifa" is a palette of ethnic rhythms that sound like the heartbeat of the earth, merging with pure acoustic sounds and mystical synthesizer tones. Listening to this music, you can immerse yourself in the evening world and feel true tranquility enveloping your soul. The harmonies and structure of the track "Tarifa" create an unparalleled symphony, like an enchantment transporting us to another realm. The track "Don't Go Hiding Now" captivates me with its magic. Here, you can hear not only folk ethnic motifs but also a touch of flamenco resonating in the guitar sounds, and the musician's vocals are like the incantation of a priest performing a ritual. It's the magic of melody that captures me, like a wave of inspiration and a surge of strength rising from the deepest levels of consciousness.

A shining example of the album's unique style and the musician's music is the track "Cornered Tiger." In it, synth, light African motifs, and pop acoustic vocals with a subtle synth sound harmonize perfectly. By the end of the album, my sense of amazement and enjoyment of the new sound turns into a hypnotic addiction to the melodies of "Tarifa." I feel like I'm diving into a vortex of music through time and experiencing the most significant genres in these milestones of musical history.

It's as if Blanco White is fully immersed in avant-garde music, and by the final track, "Riding On The Wind," he becomes one with it. The last track, "Riding On The Wind," evokes thoughts of all the best things that the music of the past century has given us. A gentle nostalgia with a touch of sadness envelops the heart. It's as if, if tears were to roll down my cheeks now, they would be tears of purification. The softest sound, the gentleness and lightness of the music, serve as the perfect conclusion to the album. It's a journey that every listener on the planet should embark on to discover new horizons in music. It's astonishing and amazing!


"Tarifa" is a mystical, genre-bending experience that will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about music. Blanco White, the musical nomad, has harnessed the essence of different cultures, traditions, and instruments, and woven them seamlessly into "Tarifa." This album is a cosmic exploration, and each track is a wormhole to another dimension. Imagine embarking on an introspective journey alongside Blanco White. Allow the music to envelop you, permeate the depths of your being, and provoke profound contemplation. "Tarifa" transcends the boundaries of a mere album, it unveils itself as a profound and awe-inspiring revelation. It emerges as a melodic comet streaking through the vast expanse of your existence. To forego partaking in this cosmic experience would be to miss out on a transformative voyage of self-discovery. Get into the real vibes, and let the music take you on a mind-blowing journey that'll stay in your head for ages!
