CAAMAÑO & AMEIXEIRAS
“Creators with a great popular imagination and with undoubted instrumental skill and mastery of melody.”
Maria Ivanova – Sonograma Magazine
“They are a breath of fresh air within the music scene of Galicia.”
Sabela Caamaño (chromatic accordion) and Antía Ameixeiras (violin and vocals) form Caamaño&Ameixeiras, a Galician duo linked to roots music and dance. Since its birth, in 2018, this duo has had an intense trajectory, both nationally and internationally. Taking tradition as a starting point, the duo manages to create their own unique language, with personal and lively compositions and arrangements that maintain the essence of popular music while incorporating contemporary resources and placing emotion at the forefront.
After the success of their first album, Aire! (Segell Microscopi, 2021) (Martín Códax da Música 2021 Award in Folk category, 1st Prize in Folkez Blai 2021 (Ermua, Basque Country), Opinión da Música de Raíz ao disco do ano 2021 Award), produced by the renowned musician from Burgos Diego Galaz and with such outstanding collaborations as that of Sílvia Pérez Cruz or Fetén Fetén, the duo releases their second album in October 2023.
In Quitar o aire (Raso Estudio, 2023), with Hevi (Malandrómeda) at the controls of the production, Caamaño&Ameixeiras resignify and update the codes of roots music, turning their sound upside down, elevating the mysticism and depth, taking the sonority of Galician and Iberian tradition to the virulence of more frontal planes with music that goes beyond the margins of genres.
