Galandum Galundaina - Senhor Galandum (Portugal 2009) @192

Galandum Galundaina is a Portuguese quartet that in the past fifteen years has been studying the traditions of the North Eastern part of Portugal. On traditional instruments such as several types of bagpipes, flutes, hurdy gurdy, percussion and vocals the band brings the traditional music in a highly professional way. The music might remind you a lot of the Galician tradition, which isn’t that strange seen the geographical location of the areas the music comes from and the fact that Galician singer Uxia is one of the guests on this album. 

It’s amazing how modern these old melodies sometimes sound. In the third song (sorry, but the song titles are not printed in the booklet I got so I don’t know the name of this composition) the hurdy gurdy plays a melody that would suit a rock band. Besides the good instrumental parts the strong vocal parts should be mentioned as well. An album full variation with strong music by a fantastic band.
