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,”Susana says. These are: Brais Maceiras (accordion), Xurxo Iglesias (bouzouki), Carlos Freire (percussion), Teresa Saias (drums), Roberto Somoza (sax and flute) and Quique 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.
