Galician harp

The harp is one instrument that I haven´t seen featured in Galician music.  So I was pleasantly surprised when I caught a performance of Rodrigo Romani with a selection from his new CD ¨As Arpas de Breogán¨ on RTVG.

Mr. Romani was a founding member of the group Milladoiro, recording 12 records and is also a founder of the Municipal School of Traditional and Folk Music in Vigo .

In the contemporary folk of As Arpas de Breogán there´s a pleasing jazz fusion component along with the melifluous vocals threading through his original compositions and adaptations of traditional tunes.

Romani has three solo albums - Albeida (2001), Cantos Caucanos (2003) and Breogan Harp (2012).
