Xabier Díaz & Adufeiras de Salitre

January 28, 2019

A reminder that Xabier Díaz & Adufeiras de Salitre are playing the Rich Mix at London this coming Wednesday 30th. (Because of that gig, we held our session a week earlier, so no session this Wednesday!) Xabier Díaz will also be hosting a tambourine workshop at the Centro Galego on Tuesday evening.


I’ve shared one of their videos before (Agarrado de Vilar de Cabeiras), as we’re also singing that song, so here’s a different one, of a song we’re not singing (yet):

Sing with the Oxford Pandeireteiras

November 11, 2018

The Pandeireteiras are about to begin taking monthly classes with an experienced local singing tutor / community choir leader. This will be English speaking and without tambourines, so anybody who likes the Galician songs can join in. Classes are likely to be held in Botley on a Thursday evening. Contact me or any of the Pandeireteiras for further details.

On Monday 12.2., from 19:00-21:00h there will be a Spoons workshop organised by and for the Oxford Pandeireteiras, but open to all.

The workshop is run by Jo May, who has also run similar events at the Folk Weekend Oxford. It will be at the East Oxford Community Centre (44 Princes Street, OX4 1DD, corner with Cowley Rd). Advance tickets (£10) available from EventBrite.

NB: The monthly French/Breton session will be happening the same evening at the James Street Tavern (starting 20:30h), just across the road , so if anybody wants to go for a beer after the workshop and/or wants to try out their new percussion skills that would be a good place to go. A few people you know from the Galician sessions will also be playing there …
