Biography

Roi Casal played the harp for Milladoiro during the 2000-2009 period, Milladoiro being the most international and best-known worldwide Galician band.
Roi Casal now presents his second solo recording, “Maxicamente Vello”, which was the best-selling record in Galicia in 2010 and critically acclaimed.
The union between traditional music and modernity blends here in perfect harmony. Without any kind of imposition. Without any kind of trend.
This is how “Maxicamente Vello” was born, as a result of a process of decoding the culture of a country from the prespective of a 21st century citizen. “Maxicamente Vello” includes nine
songs. Nine works of art in which the young musician and composer shows very neatly the taste of a millenial music which has been taking shape through history by putting together all the different cultures that have converged in the Pilgrims Road to Santiago on their way to this European finis terrae (Land’s End).
