The Madeira plays surf music born of screaming wind over the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert, deafening echoes of waves pounding the Gibraltar Rock, joyous late-night gypsy dances in the small towns of Andalucia, and exotic cacophony of the Marrakesh town square. It is the surf music of the millennia-old Mediterranean mysteries.
Led by guitarist Ivan Pongracic of the legendary Space Cossacks, this great band has put out three full-length CD’s and a CD-EP on Double Crown. The band continues to play live, having recently played at the Surf Guitar 101 Convention in California and the Surfer Joe Festival in Italy, and has also begun work on their fourth full-length CD release for Double Crown.
Their most recent CD, Tribal Fires, was named as the runner-up in Pipeline Instrumental Review's "Album Of The Year" awards for 2012.
