Galician singing

Xavier Sanchez e Iglesias
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

In this course, you will learn to sing in the Galician tradition with Xavier Sánchez e Iglesias. Even though Galicia, known for the pilgrimage site of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, is only a small region of the north of Spain, it has a strong musical tradition that has delighted researchers such as Alan Lomax. Artists like Carlos Nuñez, Mercedes Peon, or our very own Belgo-Galician Ialma, have conquered the world with their passionate Galician music and voices. The course is based on oral transmission and is for anyone who likes singing in groups. No prior musical knowledge is required! You will learn different rhythms (Muiñeira, Xota, Pasodoble, Mazurka, rumba …) and dive into the rich Galician repertoire. We will also focus on interpretation, ornamentation, and vocal timbre. Everybody is welcome, no matter their level!
