cd cover La Musgaña
Temas Profanos (Mad River)

Spain's La Musgaña plays traditional music of Central Spain, where Moroccans and Celts, Europeans and Africans have all left their mark. A band of traditional instruments including gaita (bagpipes), wooden flutes and hurdy-gurdy, and more contemporary instruments like fiddle, guitar, accordion plays dance tunes and love songs, ritual music, village celebrations and lullabies. Based in Madrid and together for twenty years, La Musgaña ("the water rat") still features original members Jaime Muñoz and Carlos Beceiro, with newer members Jorge Arribas on accordion and Diego Galáz on violin.

Some recent reviews of the CD:

"La Musgaña's folk music of Spain is as old as the troubadors and as young as the electric guitar…fruited with exquisite melodies, freighted with melancholy and frenzied with irresistible rhythms." - Kevin R. Convey, Boston Herald

"A real thrill of discovery... You can hear not only Spain, but much of the Mediterranean and North Africa in the melodies and especially the rhythms, that percolate beautifully." - SingOut Magazine

"Radical new interpretations of traditional music sounding nearly ancient" - Global Rhythm Magazine

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.
