Tara started performing at 5 years old. The daughter of legendary wrestler El Bandito, she descended into the world that we call entertainment, without the opportunity to wonder why performing was such an integral part of her personality. In 2009 after the loss of her father, her hero and inspiration, she embarked upon a journey, symbolic and literal, to discover herself and begin the journey of Tara Bandito. Lockdown life found Tara’s story telling nature penning heartfelt bilingual lyrics teamed with an eclectic mix of pumping alternative pop and world music. As a result, she signed as a new artist with Côsh Records in December 2021. Working with the producer Rich James Roberts, she recorded three singles which will appear on her debut album in late 2022. Her first single, ‘Blerr’, was released on 14 January 2022, with a supporting music video produced by Lŵp, directed by Tara. The single received wide attention after having a first play on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio Cymru followed by a three week stint on Radio Wales ‘Welsh A-List’ during which she was hailed “monumental and inspiring” by Radio Wales DJ Adam Walton. Tara Bandito is one of BBC Horizon's Launchpad scheme for 2022.
