Tara Perdida is a Portuguese punk rock band. Composed by 5 members: João Ribas (vocals), Ruka (guitar), Ganso (guitar), Jimmix (bass) and Rodrigo (drums), it was originally an underground project, but they have become commercially successful, especially among young generations.
Tara Perdida formed when João Ribas, after leaving Censurados (a pioneering punk band in Portugal) wanted to create another Portuguese punk rock band, and other bandmantes, Ruka and Orélio had the same goal. So they joined, in 1995 and formed Tara Perdida. Since then Tara Perdida has released five studio albums: Tara Perdida, Só Não Vê Quem Não Quer, É Assim..., Lambe-Botas, and Nada a Esconder
