The Music of Galicia

Cristina Pato

I made this playlist to highlight the strong Celtic influence in the music of Galicia in northwestern Spain:

In addition to the twenty-one selections featured in the playlist, this is a good bonus:


The song is also the last track on Santiago, an album in which The Chieftains performed with musicians from Galicia, among my favorite of their collaborations. The first face you see when you start the video is that of Paddy Moloney, playing the uilleann pipes - just so you know who he is.


Here's hoping you enjoy this music and learn more about the culture of this region!

Cheers,
Angus
