Carlos Núñez live in Mount Vernon, WA

The Jimi Hendrix of the Bagpipe’s foray into the pathways of the Galician diaspora took him to Brazil to research and create his latest major work, Alborada do Brasil.

If it’s possible to become a pop star playing traditional music on the bagpipes and recorder, Núñez could be the man. He is handsome and performs with kinetic flair and his playing had the presence and sense of freedom and vitality that are qualities of all exceptional musicians.

—Los Angeles Times

The world press celebrates Carlos Núñez as charismatic and brilliant. His CD sales have achieved gold or even platinum status in Spain, reaching 1 million worldwide.

He became an honorary member of the Chieftains in their Grammy award-winning album Santiago and he had a Number One Hit in the Spanish Radio charts. Seeing him perform live, one is gripped by his sensitivity, energy and virtuosity.

Carlos says: In Galicia we play Celtic music as the Irish, Scottish and Bretons do, but we add Spanish passion and temperament, that’s our trademark. This Spanish-Celtic spark spreads worldwide like wildfire and generates a flame of enthusiasm.
