The melodic metal behind an enchanting Latin sound

image preview

THE ENERGETIC sound of Túcan could easily be confused with that of a modern Spanish flameco group. With wild contemporary Spanish guitar playing mxed with an obvious passion for heavy metal, this Sligo band have found their niche, and are expanding and tweaking it at a rapid rate. Formed by Donal Gunne and Pearse Feeney from Sligo, the duo have been playing up and down the country for the last couple of years. As a duo playing Spanish guitar it is easy to compare them to the country’s most loved Spanish guitar duo, Rodrigo y Gabrielle, and this only compliments their level of ability. With similar style influences from classic and progressive rock to trad, and the somewhat bizarre mixture of gypsy guitar legends like Django Reinhardt, with progressive rock band Tool, the group have compiled a heavy thumping rock and roll, trad, and folk stomping sound. Energetic, euphoric, and loaded with passion.
