RÅDĮØ ÅHŁËË, aka Alan Taverna. Minnesota artist born and raised. hip hop dance and rap artist out to kick some static.
With his latest project The Homecoming, Southside Minneapolis rapper and producer Tufawon returns to his local roots with a new global perspective, having realized the dream of exploring the world highlighted on his previous effort, The Send-Off. With smooth and soulful boom-bap production from Sevadar Sehaj, Tufawon expands on the themes of politics, culture, social awareness, and self-care that has defined his approach, showcasing the growth that travel and personal development have brought to his life and his work.
Growing up in poverty without the privilege to move outside his immediate community, an eye-opening series of trips throughout Latin America in recent years gave Tufawon a profound understanding of the beauty and struggle that permeates all things, and his raps showcase both his genesis and his journey. In his travels, he worked with a wide range of rappers, producers, and instrumentalists across several countries, which helped push the Minneapolis veteran's music into bold new territory, and The Homecoming is the sonic culmination of his explorations.
With a slick, gritty sound that stems from his origins in the seminal Minneapolis group Illuminous 3 with Freez and Franz Diego, Tufawon holds strong to his established style while letting the vibe progress naturally with every new experience. Where The Send-Off reflected a desire to see what the world could teach him, The Homecoming is Tufawon recounting those lessons and working towards an expanded consciousness. His raps feel hyper-local and universal, drawing on a quest for a deeper grasp on himself and the broader landscape. Having absorbed so much, he now aims to give back and share that knowledge with his fans.
