Don the Tiger

Don the Tiger

Don The Tiger is the solo project of Adrián de Alfonso, nomadic Spanish musician who has collaborated with the likes of Carla Bozulich, Lydia Lunch, Victor Herrero, Lucrecia Dalt, Robert Forster or Mark Cunningham.

Based in Berlin since 2011, Don The Tiger takes inspiration from everything he misses in that city -be it rumba, MPB, bolero, baroque fantasy, guabina, torch songs, flamenco or Fania Records- and channels it through elaborate sampling techniques and musique concrète outbursts, delivering it all in a way that owes more to primitive rock’n’roll or avant-garde pop than to anything else.

Besides a bunch of untraceable tapes and cdrs, Don The Tiger has released two LPs to date: “Varadero” (2013, Canada) and “Matanzas” (2018, Crammed Discs).
