Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Of all the Celtic settlements, the Spanish province of Galicia once bore the lowest musical profile. All that changed when the powerful gaita of piping prodigy Carlos Nuñez caught the world's ear. An integral part of the Chieftains' SANTIAGO album and now considered to be the seventh member of that band, Nuñez delivered a glorious solo turn on this 1997 release. Carrying the evocative drone common to Celtic music from Scotland to Brittany, Galician music also embraces Spanish forms such as flamenco, and Nuñez's vision includes the tones and timbres of Latin America as well. He's joined by a who's who of roots artists, from New Flamenco percussionist Tino DiGeraldo to ...

He's joined by a who's who of roots artists, from New Flamenco percussionist Tino DiGeraldo to guitar collaborator extraordinaire Ry Cooder to Irish stalwarts The Chieftains and Sean Keane. Expatriate Cuban chanteuse Caridad Hierrezuelo even shows up for this magical, masterful session.
All Music Guide - Bob Gottlieb
This is the first major release of Galician the strongly Celtic area of northern Spain gaita by Galician bagpipes player Carlos Nunez. This is a stunning effort showing the strong influences of traditional Celtic music, Spanish flamenco, and Latin American rhythms. Nunez has become closely associated with the Chieftains since he first performed with them in 1989 and has since become the seventh member of the group, continually performing with them throughout the world. On this disc he uses a wide assortment of players in every type of configuration the imagination can conceive of: Paddy Moloney, with and without the rest of the Chieftains, Ry Cooder, Luz Casal, and his own band, Diego Bouzon Spanish guitar, Pancho Alvarez bouzouki, mandolin, acoustic guitar, Fernando Fraga accordion, piano, keyboards, Marcos Vasquez bodhran, drum, tympani, percussion, Enrique Iglesias violin, and Carlos Nunez himself gaita, recorder, whistle, ocarina, Jews harp. The playing is stellar, also showing the guiding influence of Paddy Moloney's careful production. The music unfolds like a carefully orchestrated whole, starting with the beautiful opening of "Dawn," going through all the changes and blending of his myriad influences, and ending with the upbeat and driving rhythms of "Para Vigo Me Voy."

    This music will touch your soul.

    Having heard Carlos Nunez perform live with The Chieftains at the Kennedy Center, it is evident that he plays with a deep love for his country and music. The music of the gaita, and the music of Galicia, resounds in Carlos' playing. You will not be disappointed.
