Asturian Air

No hornpipe of course, but a tune from Asturia, can be played either as an air (see Lunasa where this version comes from) or as a slow march, what would be more in the tradition of Asturia/Galicia. Can be played as well in B minor fitting better to my flute level ;-)

Austrain Air

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to infiniti!
I always wanted to play this song since the moment I heard it on the Lunasa album. ‘Tis beautiful.

Coyí d’un artu una flor

That’s the actual name of this Asturian traditional "tonada" arranged for flute by Marcos Llope, flute player from the Asturian folk band Llan de Cubel. It was included at the album "IV". Asturian tonadas are a kind of traditional liric vocal songs without time. Sometimes they are accompanied by the Asturian bagpipes.

Coyí d’un artu una flor = I took a flower from a bambler, in asturian language

What’s a ‘bambler’? :-/

Someone who bambles.:-)

I think it should be "bramble"

Artu is also the translation for (king) arthur, but that would be a bit too queer ;-)
