Galicia somos nós

April 14, 2018

lovely video combining hiphop choreography with the Muiñeira de Chantada, which is also part of our session repertoire (the version in the video is by Carlos Nuñez and the Chieftains). We’ll all dance it like that next time …

The lines recited at the beginning of the video are the tail end of the poem

Galicia, by Manuel Maria

Galicia é o que vemos:
a terra, o mar, o vento…
Pero hai outra Galicia
que vai no sentimento!

Galicia somos nós:
a xente e maila fala
Se buscas a Galicia
en ti tes que atopala!

BTW, Manuel Maria is also the author of the poem O carro, the song version of which is also in our session repertoire, although we haven’t sung it very often.


Muiñeira de Chantada

September 29, 2017

Muiñeira de Chantada at the September session, with David Carril playing gaita. Watch out for the Muiñeira dancing at the end …

I discovered this through Nadia’s tutorial and suggested it for the session. Mano had a version in A, but we’re now playing it in C. Dots for this version are here. Alternatively, you can look it up in the folkoteca galega which will automatically create a score in whatever key you choose.
