Berrogüetto - Hepta (Spain 2001) @256

For those who still don't know them, the band Berrogüetto is considered by many around the world as one of the best Galician bands. This accomplishment stands out in itself if we take into account that one of the contestants for that title answers by the name of Milladoiro. Much of the success of the band is due to the acceptance of their first two albums, Navicularia and Viaxe por Urticaria, both of them true masterpieces whose main quality is the original and contemporary approach taken by the musicians to the traditional tunes.
There was therefore much expectation surrounding their third release, premiered in December 2001 in the Galician town of Santiago de Compostela. Hepta (seven in ancient Greek) is built around the number 7 and its several meanings in nature and society. Seven are the colors of the rainbow, seven are the main arts, seven are the musical notes, seven are the days of the week.

Great albums. I am using your recommendations on my weekly radio show Most of the music I get through the station's Spotify account but many of these are not even on that!
Thanks a lot.
