Eleven comments

This is from the northern coast of Galicia and has the form of an "alborada".
I think it is more a 2/4 kind of rythm, but I have written it down in 4/4 already.

Alborada

this tune is really a galician alborada, that means sunrise. We used to play with gaita in the morning of "festas" and during the parade with the pipers group, playing around the church behind the saint procession.
Lousame is a pretty council in the area of Santiago de Compostela, Galiza (Spain). Another councils closed to Lousame are Rianxo, Dodro, Rois, Boiro, Porto do Son, Noia and Brion, all in A Coruña province, mostly placed in the west of the province and not in the north. You can hear that tune in several CD´s. I learnt this alborada from a fantastic group that was "Os cempés" but you can also hear it in one CD of Milladoiro too.

Another version

actually, the version I know is quite different from this one. I preffer the version learned from "Os cempés" because it sounds more traditional.

Well, manna a manu ~ let’s see your ABCs for it? 😏

Liam O’Flynn

I transcribed this version from Liam O’Flynn’s recording.
Liam seems to be regularely in Galicia, but as Carlos Nunez plays together with Liam on this CD, the tune might come from the repertoire of Carlos (?).

Os Cempés´ version

I have not this tune wrote in abc at this time. I learned it from the CD.
Maybe you can find this CD in the web www.oscempes.com or anywhere you know…

Re: Marcha De Lousame

This song is an "alborada", a musical genre in 2/4 played at the beginning of the mornig in celebration days, not played to dance. It was recorded with the name of "Alborada" or "Alborada de Verín". Could the name "Marcha de Lousame" be a mistake in Liam O’Flynn’s album?

Re: Marcha De Lousame

I would expect the name of the tune came from Carlos Nunez who was one of the guests on this recording.
Anyway on the sleeve notes it is written the form of an Alborada.

Re: Marcha De Lousame

Probably, I do not know the reason. I find it curious that Liam O’Flynn and Milladoiro recorded this tune the same year (1999), and Milladoiro playing it with the uilleann pipe. Both had collaborated in a previous album. Maybe, this collaboration could be another explanation.
