O son de Galicia

There is a lovely project that just launched on Facebook, presenting the variety of people who contribute to the amazing global phenomenon that is Galician folk.

In a standardised format, everybody gets to share two photos and a statement saying what they do (living it, i.e. the sound of Galicia, is an option if what you do is too complicated to fit in the frame). Full participation details here.  The resulting displays are shared via the facebook page which is publicly visible Рjust click away the pop-up message that asks you to log in and then you can look at all the lovely people. There are names and links to recordings as well.

I’ve nicked a few, just for illustration purposes. I’ll leave out the names, so you can play a guessing game. One of them was interviewed in last Sunday’s Un Pais Mundial, one I’ve seen live on stage in London, one we’re hoping to see in Oxford later this year, and the other two I don’t know.


Oh, and I should mention that the genius behind the project is Benoit Kensier, a gaiteiro based in Brussels: https://cornemusegaliciennebe.blogspot.com/2016/11/benoit-kensier_67.html
