Carlos Núñez is one of Galicia’s most revered artists, undisputed as the tradition’s greatest piper.

Núñez’s music draws on influences that range from ancient and contemporary Celtic (with a unique Spanish swing) to Medieval and Baroque, and also borrows from the sounds and styles of the places where Galicians have settled, including Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, even the United States.
