As Meigas

As Meigas

Woody Guthrie Stage - Rm 232 - 5:00-5:30

As Meigas plays traditional tunes and songs from Galicia, which is the northwestern most province in Spain, located north of Portugal. The music is traditionally played on the gaita - the Galician bagpipe - which is about half as loud as Scottish bagpipes. The gaitas are typically accompanied by a variety of percussion instruments, including the tambourine-like pandeireta, and the bombo (bass drum).
