CARLOS NÚÑEZ

Carlos Nunez was born in Vigo, Galicia in 1971 and started playing the Galician bagpipe as a young boy. He studied the recorder at the Royal Conservatory in Madrid where his talent was developed. He soon came to the attention of the Chieftains who invited him to join their band. On their tribute album to Galician music, 'Santiago', he contributed together with other famous names like Los Lobos. Since then his career has taken off and he has collaborated with a who`s who of the music scene. He has been described as `the star of the bagpipes` and received many awards and nominations throughout the world. He has explored a whole range of music from Celtic, Breton, Cuban, flamenco, pop, and more recently Brasilian. Brittany was virtually his home for three years whilst he developed music which embodied that ancient region. The album `Almas de Fisterra` reflected this magic. His music is often in demand for soundtracks to films, like the Amenabar film `The Sea Inside`. He has sold over a million records and is in demand worldwide as an extraordinary musical phenomenom.
