styles and opening new horizons at the cutting edge of music as can be seen in his debut
album in electronic music called Spiritu (986) - BMG (2000).
Anxo Lorenzo, internationally renowned piper, is preparing his new CD called Vórtex.
The album being slowly “cooked” in Galicia, Ireland and Scotland will have special
collaborations with famous musicians from the folk world and will continue down the
experimental acoustic route as in the previous albums Tirán and Confuxon. New
compositions and surprising arrangements where Anxo, once again, takes the Galician
bagpipes and whistles to their limit with his particular free-style on a quest for new sounds,

of May. In June, the musician from Moaña, whose international tour will commence in
