There are hundreds of pubs scattered across Spain’s geography (Irish style in most cases). But the ones that program live music events are counted just by dozens. Even much less if we are talking about folk music sessions. And then, there are the very few ones that become ‘mythical temples’, due to the singular efforts of enthusiastic & tireless: bar tenders and owners, musicians & loyal fans. Examples : CA BELEÑO in Gijón & Oviedo (Asturias), LA TABERNA DE ELISAin Madrid, and A CASA DAS CRECHAS in Santiago de Compostela (Galicia). This CD is a compilation of 15 songs performed in May 2009 by a group of the musicians regularly meeting for the trad sessions in A CASA DAS CRECHAS (The House of the Ripples), the other “cathedral” in Santiago/St. James, the one for Galician folk music. This band plays 8 songs traditional from Galicia, but there are others from Ireland, Scandinavia (from the bands VÄSEN & JPP), Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Castile (central Spain). ABDC (A BANDA DAS CRECHAS) are: Chus BELLO (banjo), Pablo DALAMA (saxo & gaita), Antón GUILLÉN (fiddle), Roi VÁZQUEZ (flutes), Manuel AMIGO (gaita, djembe, Galician percussions), Davide SALVADO (voice & pandeireta/Galician tambourine), Pepa YAÑEZ (voice & pandeireta), Gonzalo GOÁS (guitar), Carlos FREIRE (percussion), Xan PAMPÍN (bass drum), Santiago CRIBEIRO (accordion) and Quim FARINHA (fiddle). Santiago & Quim are members of the band BERROGÜETTO. ABDC certainly transmits the intense emotion of just a few of the many top folk artists from Galicia, sharing their passion for traditional music, and doing it in a historic & amicable folk music ‘temple’. It can be specially felt in tunes such as the Galician ‘Pasodobre de Viascon’, the ‘Slängpolska efter Byss-Kalle’, the Irish jig ‘Queen of the Rushes’, the Bulgarian-Macedonian ‘Hard on the Heels’ from Andy IRVINE & Davy SPILLANE’s record ‘East Wind’, or ‘Por Encima del Aro’, a North-Castilian song popularized in recent times by Eliseo PARRA. This ‘baile charro’ (a.k.a. ‘La Llave de la Alegría’) traditional from county Aliste (Zamora province), is sung here by Davide SALVADO who plays in the band of the gaita piper Xosé Manuel BUDIÑO. Let’s hope that Spain’s faded economy in 2010, still allows more folk music initiatives as positive as this one.
