A Contrabanda

A Contrabanda plays traditional music from Galicia (north of Spain) on gaita (Galician bagpipes) and percussion (tambourine, shells, drum...). This ’banda de gaitas’ is the result of the lessons gaita and percussion at Muziekpublique (Brussels). Galician music is -thanks to its celtic roots- close to Irish and Breton music. Contrabanda plays the typical Galician rythms (muiñeira, similar to the ’jig’, jota, paso doble, polka, rumba etc), and also shows you how to dance on them!

In recent years A Contrabanda played at several festivals in Belgium and France (Festival Euroceltes Strasbourg, Parkfeesten Sterrebeek etc).
