Formed at Moaña’s Semente Nova school pipe in the early 80’s. He participates in Xarabal pipe band and, in 1991, he founds the group “Fol de Niu”. Then, he plays with bands like Altan (Ireland), Capercaillie (Scotland), Oskorri (Euskadi)… and with artists like Kepa Junkera, Uxía, Mercedes Peón…

Galician from origin and universal because of his fado, convinced traveller; non-stop creator, innovative activist, dreamer of impossible melodies from a town where the wind converts into calm music.

Home is Xosé Manuel Budiño’s new album, a full of vitality work where melodies born from the experiences and the influences gathered throughout a year touring by the whole world in places like Sofia, Buenos Aires, Mexico, Dublin, Milan, Lebanon, Syria or Morocco.

Xosé Manuel Budiño once again assumes the musical work of composition, arrangements, recording and production of the new album, but this time with the special collaboration of artists like: Jorge Pardo (sax), Paulo Borges (piano), Jacky Molard (violin), Paco Charlín bass, Mercedes Peón (voice), Carlos Castro (drums), Kepa Junkera (trikitixa), Xoel Lopez from Deluxe (voice), Antón Reixa…

    Saw him live last weekend. I've never seen anyone try to play the bagpipes... sexily.

    I bought his CD Volta last week. Great album. If anyone likes his music, you may want to try Afro Celt Sound System. The same great rithm and atmosphere, just different songs!
