Carlos Núñez has become Galicia’s foremost traditional music ambassador as he connects the musical tradition of his native Spain’s rugged northwest coast with that of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and beyond. While an amazingly versatile multi-instrumentalist, he is widely regarded as the most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia uniquely evocative of Celtic traditional music.
Whether recording with The Chieftains or performing with a symphony orchestra in a historical square, Carlos Núñez packs energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into his every performance.
