DOA is another longstanding Galician folk group. Dating from the early 70´s they list influences as diverse as Jimmy Hendrix and King Crimson to Bach and Telemann.

Now on my Christmas list, I only heard about them because they have a new remix album ¨A fronda dos Cervos¨ out and there was a blurb on the Gallega channel.

This is not toe-tapping celtic music. From what little I´ve heard, it´s heavily influenced by medieval music and is more on the ambience end of the scale, I suppose.

I´m especially loving the hurdy-gurdy. I wonder how hard that is to learn to play.
