Galandum Galundaina | Portugal



Galandum Galundaina is a group of traditional music from Miranda do Douro [in the north of Portugal]. It was created in 1996 with the aim to collect, investigate and publicize the music heritage, dances and language of the lands of Miranda (mirandês). The group makes the connection between the older generation of musicians and the younger generation, ensuring the continuity of the rich cultural tradition of this region, which for years ran the risk of being lost.

The instruments used, replicas of the ancient ones which maintain the original look and sound, are bagpipes [from Miranda do Douro], pastoral flute, accordion, war chest, shells of Santiago, castanets, tambourine, etc..
In instrumental music, the group has a repertoire of music with voices, faithfully reproducing the traditional melodies, enriched with sounds, rhythms and harmonies that can create excitement, and why not, some modernity.
The group members were born and raised in the Land of Miranda where they acquired direct knowledge of the music they play through their family, socializing with old pipers, and consultation of old recordings.
In addition to the family musical tradition, the group members also have academic training in music.

Dances from the north of Portugal

 Hi partners!

Look how similar our dances are with some of yours. specially with Spain! 

This first dance is danced only by men. They wear skirts as you can see and they dance with sticks! They live in the right up side corner of Portugal, next to Spain, in a region called Trás-os-Montes.


The second dance is from Minho, a beautiful region in the left up corner, next to the ocean. 


The two last dances are from our region, Douro Litoral (under Minho).



Hope you've enjoyed!
