EXQUIRLA is the result of the union between two musical identities that are considered to be as contradictory as they are complementary: the magic and intensity of TOUNDRA, one of the most relevant instrumental rock bands in Europe at the moment and Niño de Elche, the main important emerging Flamenco artist in Spain on the other. As most of the best things in life, the bond between these two diverse parties happened almost accidentally when the two bands found themselves sharing a festival in Cadiz. Fascination burst in both directions and everybody involved remembers this as a remarkable moment. Not long after its inception, the band was invited to play one show for the anniversary of Spain’s most influential music magazine, “Mondosonoro”. That show had such a big impact on the crowd that making an album became mandatory. The outcome is “Para Quienes Aún Viven” (= “For Those Still Alive”), an album that lyrically travels through poems that reflect upon the most intense elements within human nature, and that combines amazing musical intensity with breath-taking emotions through amalgamating the essence of TOUNDRA’s sound, which is mainly influenced by Mogwai, Pelican, Isis, Russian Circles, with the passion of flamenco.
