One of Galicia's most revered artists and undisputed as the tradition's greatest piper.

Carlos Núñez is one of Galicia’s most revered artists, undisputed as the tradition’s greatest piper. He is well known in Irish music circles, thanks to his early "adoption" by The Chieftains (so close was his musical and personal connection he was dubbed "The Seventh Chieftain"). Núñez’s music draws on influences that range from ancient and contemporary Celtic (with a unique Spanish swing) to Medieval and Baroque, and also borrows from the sounds and styles of the places where Galicians have settled, including Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, even the United States.
