Texedores de Suaños
The Asturian folk group (and family) Tejedor is composed of José Manuel (Asturian bagpipes, low whistle, flute), Javier (button accordion, gaita [bagpipes], flutes) and Eve Tejedor (percussion and voice). This is a rich mix of Asturian traditional music and new ideas. Produced by Phil Cunningham (who also offers his own accordion playing on a number of tracks), the ties between Asturian and celtic traditions are stong, but Spain is never sublimated in the mix for the pure sake of making the sound more approachably "Celtic." Strong playing by all three musicians support some wonderful original and traditional songs.
Guest artists also include:
Michael McGoldrick: uilleann pipes, flute (Capercaillie)
Duncan Chisholm: fiddle
Kepa Junkera: (trikitixia - accordion)
Also by Tejedor: Llunaticos (2003)
|"The chosen material is self written or traditional, but all excellent. The group has a fresh, and acoustic sound. The instrumental parts are often based on the gaita (the Asturian pipes). The songs are either sung by the powerful voice of Eva Tejedor, or by a group of some girls (including Eva).... Tejedor have proved with this album, that Asturian music should not be ignored..." - Christian Moll, FolkWorld|
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
