Brenga Astur

Brenga Astur was founded in 1994 by Asturian musicians. Their aim has always been to give people a knowledge about the Asturian Celtic folk music in different ways: from a more traditional perspective, to a folk and even folk-rock point of view.The group always shows its Celtic spirit by offering music from the eight official Atlantic Celtic Arch Countries: Ireland, Scotland, The Isle of Man, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, Asturies and Galicia. Obviously, most of the music they play is the Celtic folk music from their own country: Asturies. The instruments they play are the most popular and used in all these Celtic countries, as well as other instruments from all around the world: from traditional multidrone Asturian bagpipes, to Irish flutes, Asturian hand percussions, or the accordion, but also the acoustic guitars, bouzouki, bass guitar, voices and drums. In this way, they always play a sound that is closely attached to the Celtic spirit, the primary and most important idea of the group since it was created.
