JOSÉ ÁNGEL HEVIA VELASCO

Hevia was born in Villaviciosa in Asturias. It was in 1992 when he won first prize for solo bagpipes in a Celtic music festival in Brittany, that his talent was uncovered. He is now renowned for his success in popularising the electronic bagpipes in Spain and the rest of Europe. A special type of electronic MIDI bagpipes was invented by two of his students. His single, `Busindre Reel`(No Man`s Land) became so popular that he began to be invited to perform all over Europe. A love of percussion explains the four players in his eight piece band, which also includes his sister, Maria. However, his album, Tierra de Nadie, gives full expression to a range of instruments including the didgeridoo, violin, flute, oud, guitars and keyboards. There are some superb tracks such as: Barganz; La Linea Trazada; and Sobrepena. Like many musicians, Hevia loves to encourage his fellow artists, and oftens shares the stage with a variety of talent, including his students. For instance, the vocals on his video are provided by the all female Collectivu Ethnografico Muyeres, who use tambourines as accompaniment. He loves to combine Celtic and traditional Asturian elements in his music, which has now spread as far as Walt Disney World in the USA.

Hevia nació en Villaviciosa de Asturias. En 1992 ganó el primer premio de gaita solista en un festival de música celta en Bretaña y así su talento fue descubierto. Ahora es conocido por su éxito en la popularización de la gaita electrónica en España y el resto de Europa. Un tipo especial de gaita MIDI electrónico fue inventado por dos de sus alumnos. Con su canción `Busindre Reel` se hizo tan popular que comenzó a ser invitado a tocar su instrumento por toda Europa. Un amor de la percusión explica los cuatro tocadores en su banda de ocho personas, que también incluye a su hermana, María. Sin embargo, su álbum, Tierra de Nadie, da plena expresión a una serie de instrumentos, incluyendo el didgeridoo, violín, flauta, laúd, guitarras y teclados. Hay algunas canciones excelentes, tales como: Barganz, La Linea Trazada, y Sobrepena. Al igual que muchos músicos, a Hevia le encanta animar a sus compañeros artistas, y a menudo comparte el escenario con una gran variedad de talento, incluyendo a sus alumnos. Por ejemplo, las voces en su vídeo son las de las mujeres del 'Collectivu Ethnografico Muyeres', que utilizan como acompañamiento de panderetas. Le gusta combinar elementos celtas y de Asturias en su música, que ahora se ha extendido hasta el mundo de Walt Disney en los EE.UU..
