Begoña Riobó is currently one of the most renowned violinists in Galician music. She has an outstanding musical career, has played with Carlos Núñez, Anxo Lorenzo, Susana Seivane, and Sondeseu, amongst others, and is now the first Galician Folk violinist to lead her own band.
"Riobó" is the name of Begoña's group and also the title of the first album, characterised by the virtuosity of the musicians when arranging and interpreting traditional Galician melodies, being faithful to their origins. Thus, each concert is a journey of sensations during which both the deep cultural roots and present day performance formulas live side by side.
Accompanying Begoña in 'Riobó', we have four renowned musicians that garner a solid professional career and participate regularly in the main musical projects in Galicia. They are Fernando Barroso (guitar), Marcos Campos (Gaita, accordion and whistles), Xosé Liz (Bouzouki), and Fernando Pérez (flute and requinta).
It's nice to hear songs like Estróupele, which opens the album, which brings together pieces of traditional Galician music very, very familiar, with exquisite arrangements.
Following a clear sound, with adaptations of themes from different Galician songbooks, like Foliada 85, Marrecas or O Bardo, with other compositions, as Mallador, by Xosé Liz itself.
Wait no further to enjoy the new album Riobó, which is the name shared by the record title, the group and currently one of the best Galician folk violinists, Begoña Riobó. A 'Map of the geography of the emotions', as described by the Galician writer Francisco Castro, characterised by the virtuosity of the musicians when arranging and interpreting traditional Galician melodies, being faithful to their origins.
