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).
