Gueta Na Fonte

I just discovered this group and am curious to listen to more songs of them.

Gueta na Fonte is a seven-piece band from Asturia, Spain. However, flute, gaita and fiddle don't play Asturian folk music, but Astur-Gaelic music with a strong Atlantic and Neoromantic flavour. It is artful folk music, a soundtrack that evokes scenes and landscapes though it takes the listener to tune types such as muneiras, jotas and pasacalles. Eventually, Gueta Na Fonte plays symphonic Asturian folk music, and does to traditional music what progressive rock groups like Genesis did for pop music.

Some of the members of the band are good friends of mine. The band I play with is actually playing after them tomorrow :-)
