From Galicia in the northwest corner of Spain comes a surprising music with ancient Celtic roots and modern Spanish energy. All this and more is embodied in the music and career of Galicia's most successful musical export: Carlos Núñez. When the Los Angeles Times suggested that “if it’s possible to become a pop star playing traditional music on bagpipes and recorder, Núñez could be the man,” it may have been an understatement. Few pop stars pack the energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into their concerts and recordings as Galician multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez does. He is the world’s most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia. Núñez is already known in Irish music thanks to his early “adoption” by the Chieftains, his close relationship with the band earning him the title of “Seventh Chieftain.”
