"Sublime, wonderful, and an absolutely benchmark"
TIME OUT LISBOA
“A very own style, a unique voice, a folk universe to discover (...). Uxía is a must known name, because of the music, interpretation, and work carried out for the divulgation and preservation of the Galician-Portuguese roots”
Uxía, “the voice of the Atlantic” and regarded as the grande dame of Galician music, is celebrating 30 years of a career that has made her one of the main ambassadors of Galician music. She has lent her powerful, earthy vocals to renew Galician traditional music connecting it with Atlantic cultures, blending Galician alalás with morna, fado and African and Brazilian rhythms.
She has published 12 albums, and received the Best Roots Music Album Award at the Independent Music Awards in Spain for Meu Canto, which was selected as Top of the World Album in Songlines Magazine. Among other projects, she is the artistic director of the International Lusophone Festival, Cantos na Maré.
