Band World Folk





“Berrogüetto has the patent on a high-energy traditional-progressive sound, with driving acoustic guitar, violin and gaita, and interesting, more-than-just-drums percussion.
They are pioneers in the movement that now includes Spain's Barahunda, Carreg Lafar of Wales, and others. The band is Quico Comesana (bouzouki, mandolin and harp), Santiago Cribeiro (accordion), Quim Farinha (violin) Guillermo Fernandez (guitar), Isaac Palacin (percussion) and Anxo Pintos (sax, flute, duduk, gaita, etc).
Guadi Galego provides breezy, sincere vocals, percussion and gaita. While it's a step or two further removed from roots tradition than the music I often prefer, I still recommend this dynamic new recording.
…10.0 has a very optimistic sound, moving forward on the strength of Galego's vocal. "Xente" is an upbeat opener with vocals, followed by instrumentals "Brest" and "Cracovia" which are Roma-influenced folk-fusion. More balladesque is the beautiful "Unha Volta e un Poema," where Galego sings over a lush arrangement including pipes, harp, percussion, guitar and violin, bridged by the gaita. "Permafrost" is another wonderful instrumental.
Farinha's violin also stands out on "Salgame,"
another instrumental featuring the gaita. "Deneb"
is a highly danceable instrumental, though don't ask me what kind of dance this demands. It has a bit of a highlands sound, with the pipes, and violin. But there is a progressive element running through it as well, with the acoustic guitar of Fernandez.
'Entropialxia" with its harp, pipes and languid vocal, is a more pensive note to end the recording on, the eleventh of eleven great tracks. - David Cox; Roots World Bulletin#379.

10.0 ( Berro Guetto Música 2006)
Kosmogonías (Berro Guetto Música 2010)



The fifth album from this Galician group whose birth represented
a point of inflexion in Galician music due
to its blend of passion for traditional music and
more modern experimentation; and the first recorded
with a male voice, that of Xabier Díaz, the new vocalist.
Consisting of eleven tracks, Kosmogonías maintains Berrogüetto's
personal style defined since the group was
formed. Innovative from their first album, the latest
album is a collection of organic sounds, a delicate
album, which reflects the soul of Berrogüetto through its
special musical conception. Along with its usual sensitivity,
we find collaborations from writers like
Rosa Aneiros and Manuel Rivas, who lent one of
his poems as the lyrics of Alalá da noite.
Kosmogonías takes us to the starting point par excellence,
to the Big Bang, to the victory of the material
over the anti-material, to the initial cry -berroof
the universe, which with its radiation reaches us. Kosmogonías
is a reflection between humanity and
the universe, a call filled with optimism towards
achieving a fairer organisational system. Berrogüetto
emphasises all the collective or individual wills
that, with their gestures and attitudes, strive to improve
their environment.
It invites us to stop, for a moment, the accelerated pace
of daily life: it encourages us to observe, to contemplate
the night sky… To take from the Kosmogonías and enjoy
a life that sometimes does not let us enjoy what is probably
the biggest show for the senses.
Edited in an impeccable CD + DVD format, Kosmogonías
includes new material from the group. It shows the concern
and interrelation demonstrated by Berrogüetto since it
started its career in modern art. It includes a video creation
produced for Kosmogonías by Olaia Sendón: a
visual creation that gathers the different social cries included
in the album, mixing image and projection, along with
experimental music created exclusively by the Galician
band for this work of art. Furthermore, Kosmogonías will
introduce the lesser-known side of Berrogüetto by including
a making-of, which shows moments like the creative
process and individual interviews with each member
