BARAHUNDA is a project of broad musical spectrum that was born in Madrid in 1998. The idea of singer (HELENA DE ALFONSO) and current guitarist (JOSE LARA GRUEIRO), was to create a band of folk singing, bringing the traditional music of the Iberian Peninsula and the songs of the Three Cultures at general audience in a Spain in which, at that time, almost every group played mostly instrumental Celtic folk. 

From 1999 BARAHUNDA starts playing on the stages of Madrid and later Spain and Portugal. 

In 2002 was published "AL SOL DE LA HIERBA," his first CD distributed by "Galileo MC-Sonifolk" and was well received by the public and the press. Songs like " MALDITO SEI AL MARE" sounded in many programs of specialized radios. 

Participate with some of the best artists in some compilation albums like " BAGOAS NEGRAS" in support of the victims of the oil spill caused by the sinking of the "Prestige". 

In 2006 was born his second cd "UNA HORA EN LA VENTANA" edited by "Musikarte" more minimalist than the first album to approach the sound of the live band at the time.
