...one of the world’s greatest folk instrumentalists. 

–The Guardian

 

 

Few artists pack as much energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into their concerts as Galician multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez. He is the world’s most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia, Spain’s northwest region, which is rich in vibrant Celtic traditional music.

                    

Núñez respects and seeks to safeguard Galicia’s musical legacy while skillfully exploring fresh, fascinating realms of new possibilities for it. He has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, Laurie Anderson and of course The Chieftains, who first introduced Núñez to larger, international audiences.

                    

Núñez’s music draws on influences that range from ancient Celtic music (with a unique Spanish touch) to Medieval and Baroque, and also incorporates sounds and styles of the places where Galicians have settled, including Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, even the United States. 

 

Special guests Banda de Gaitias "Terra Nosa" from Casa Galicia New York
