Bagpipe Sensation Susana Seivane Presents Mares de Tempo

Madrid, Spain – Susana Seivane, one of Spain’s finest bagpipers, has a new
recording, Mares de Tempo. The album includes a music video and DVD
with images of her concerts. Mares de Tempo features the same
collaborators that have accompanied her during the last few years, as well
as some new ones. Her first intention was to combine the interpretation of
traditional Galician with current musical trends. Susana Seivane ventures to
sing on five of the twelve new tracks, including a hidden track.“Its been
a project that I have wanted to do with my musicians who have accompanied me
and who have toured with me throughout these last two years,
says. These are: Brais Maceiras (accordion) Xurxo Iglesias (bouzuki) Carlos
Freire (percussion) Teresa Saias (drums). Roberto Somoza (sax and flute) and
Quiqe Alvarado (sass).  In addition, Mares de Tempo features notable collaborations by
Xavier Paxariño (flutes); Guadi Galego, singer and instrumentalist from
Berrogüetto; El Colectivo de Música Tradicional Ruote de A Coruña, (The
Traditional Music Collective Ruote from La Coruña), which performs an
exceptional version of Maneo, first track on Susana´s first album; Rodrigo
Romaní (Milladoiro) composer and harpist; and percussionist Viascón, from
the “Jarbanzo Negro” school of learning, who plays the saw (an unusual
instrument) and trumpet.

On March 20th, Susana Seivane performed at The Paris Celtic Night in front
of 52.000 people. Her huge success was recorded in the French press. This
same show will be presented shortly in Nantes, broadcast by Radio France and
television. Susana will be returning to the Lorient Festival and the USA to
perform in Michigan later this year.
