Carlos Núñez\’s latest CD released by R2 in Canada

Toronto, Canada – R2 Records of Toronto, Ontario, Canada has announced an
agreement with Sony Music (France) to distribute the latest album by 
Carlos Núñez. 

Patrick Smyth, President of R2 Records says “Carlos
Núñez, of Galicia, in northwestern, Spain is a most
remarkable musician who has been described by many as the Jimi Hendrix of the
bagpipes and we are very fortunate at R2 records that Sony Music (France) chose
R2 as the sole Canadian distributor of Carlos’ newest CD –Finisterre: The End
of the Earth
.”  Finisterre is a cape in northwestern Spain on the
coast of La Coruña province; the westernmost point of the Spanish mainland. “This CD is a wonderful jaunt through the Celtic
worlds embraced by Carlos
Núñez.  It’s a marvellous
trip skirting the traditional Celtic borders of sadness and joy.  These are
Iberian borders and the mood created by Nunez is quite different from that of
the Scottish and Irish music on which I was weaned” said Smyth.  This album
has a remarkable cast of musicians all of whom were drawn to Nunez because of
his huge talent.  This includes Alan Stivell, Dan ArBraz, Gilles Servant,
Liam O’Flynn, Eimear Quinn, Patrick Molard.  The track “The Three Pipers”
has Nunez, Molard and O’Flynn combining pipes of “fire, water and earth”
inviting the listener to decide which is which and “was a realization of a long
held dream
” said Núñez.> 

>R2 Records is a unique music company based in Toronto with
a North American target market.  “We have a growing number of bands and
individual artists who are turning to R2 Records as their gateway to the large
North American community
,” said Smyth.  This agreement with Sony France
is major recognition not just for R2 but also for the ability of a relatively
small Canadian Record Company to handle such a well known artist like Carlos
>  who is extremely well known around the world” said Smyth. 

Carlos Nunez will be performing at 3 separate events
during Celtic Colours in Cape Breton in October.  Finisterre: The End of
the Earth
will soon be available in Canada from and other fine
