Introduction

Galician Tamborine Player and Singer Xurxo Fernandes

Xurxo Fernandes (Galicia) an artist and creator with a wide experience in the music industry from A Coruña, comes to show us his unique voice and his amazing tambourine skills at The Interceltic Festival of Morrazo in the fishing village of Moaña, Galicia, Spain.  At the age of 14 and thanks to a friend's grandmother, Xurxo began a journey across Galician villages to meet women who lead the folk bands of this northwest Spanish region. This rural immersion through these lands led him to gain knowledge of a rich tradition of hand percussion (usually played with tambourines) and voice. The “pandeireteiras”, women from rural areas who were the inspirators and driving force of the Galician music, were the main source of creating his signature music. Xurxo created Radio Cos, a musical project which has two albums -Sete Cuncas (2013) and Pasatempo (2017).

The Interceltic Festival of Morrazo is a folk music festival held in the fishing village of Moaña, located in the province of Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain, and part of the O Morrazo Peninsula. This festival more than 20 years old, was born thanks to the Gaitas School of Moaña "Semente Nova" who was in charge of organizing the first edition. It was celebrated under the name of I Festival Nocturno Celta do Morrazo (I Celtic Night Festival of Morrazo) on the 15th of August, 1985. The main objective of the Interceltic Festival of Morrazo is to promote traditional Spanish folklore and the new trends in this musical genre, internationally and nationally. In 2003 it was declared of cultural interest by the European Union and the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Spain. Apart from the local Galician folk music bands other artists from all over the world participate at this music festival from Scotland, Northumbria, Ireland, Canada, and Brittany.


We might even get a chance to speak with the artists after their shows so don’t miss the opportunity! As well we might even squeeze some time to see the artisan stalls at this festival.


The Concello de Moaña is in charge of organizing this festival that is celebrated every year at the end of July or beginning of August, this year is the 38th edition and takes place on the 29th, 30th, and 31st of July.
