Muniera Carcarosa

This is a galician tune from Lúnasa’s recording "Lá Nua".
It’s like an Irish Jig 😉

Composed by the legendary Asturian accordion player "Manolete de Carcarosa".

Re: Muniera Carcarosa

Carcarosa is in Asturias, so it might be an Asturian tune?

Re: Muniera Carcarosa

Years later I comment here again. I’m 99% sure this is actually a modern Asturian tune written by one of the Tejedor brothers and it’s definitely not called Muñeira Carcarosa. That one is a traditional tune and song recorded by Tejedor on the same album. I guess this is one more we need to add to the list of Lunasa’s misnamed tunes 🙂

The tune is part of the "Siete D’Ochobre" set of Tejedor’s 1999 album "Texedores de Suaños".

and this is Muñeira Carcarosa:

Need to find the sleeve notes to check what the tune is actually called, I’ll report back if/when I do.

Ah! It’s 100% not Galician 🙂
