Taracea is a Madrid-based early music group formed in 2017. In their imaginative arrangements, they combine early tradition and contemporary sounds borrowed from Jazz and Mediterranean Music. Their first album Akoé - Nuevas Músicas Antiguas was released in 2020 by the Alpha Classics label and received excellent reviews from the European press (‘...for anyone interested in an innovative approach to early music, Akoé will surprise and delight.’ BBC Classical Music magazine).

On their recent second album Desvíos a Santiago (‘Side roads to Santiago’), Taracea focuses on medieval, renaissance and traditional pilgrim songs.

The group has played at some of the most important Spanish early music festivals such as FEMAG Gijón, Semana de Música Antigua de Logroño and Festival en el Camino de Santiago.
