Luar Na Lubre - Solsticio (Spain 2010) @320

"Solstice", the new release from the renowned Galician Folc Band Luar Na Lubre .
It's leader, Bieito Romero, in a recent interview with Europa Press, said that Luar Na Lubre is "fully fit" more than 25 years after its birth, and celebrate with "the longest drive of its career, which also opens new avenues in sounds, "for their traditional way of making music now with medieval elements."
As already mentioned, they plunged into the medieval Galician Portuguese lyric and have worked considering the merger of the traditional pagan music of Galicia and some other European areas "with medieval music more educated, more Christian." In fact, "hence the title, the ancestral worship of pagan origin."
"The album opens a new cycle of styles precisely because we have not tried yet so deeply. It is the first time that we get well into the medieval music, with a certain chamber treatment , performing it as the troubadours and the courts in the XII Century. We got something completely different and new, and open a new cycle in the sound," he underlined.
