About: Brigan
Brigan sees engaged young musicians from the South Italy united by the interest in Celtic music and culture that tempt them to begin a new way: the way of the research and revived of the traditional repertoires belonging to the Celtic area with their typical musical language.

Our last album is "Rúa San Giacomo ", created and recorded between Santiago de Compostela, Vigo and Sant'Arpino, a few miles from Naples, is the result of years of research, exchanges and long stays in the Iberian land; Rúa, from the Gallego-Portuguese "road", assumes another meaning for Brigan, related to the journey, a route begun right in Via San Giacomo (Santiago in Castilian) where the historical study and the band's place of birth is located. A musical pilgrimage where Brigan have been protagonists succeeding in framing a part of the repertoire in this work, stories and music that the pilgrims met on their own walk to Santiago over the centuries. 13 tracks , of which 4 unpublished, give birth to " Rúa San Giacomo ", a small Anthology halfway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, where the music of southern Italy coexists with the various languages and musical forms of that part of the Iberian territory set between Galicia, Asturias and Northern Portugal. Alala, villanelle, muiñeire, jote, tarantelle and traditional chants merge into a single sound and language, the sound of Brigan.

The band has collaborated with: Davide Salvado, Xurxo Fernandes, Lino Cannavacciuolo, Efren Lopez Sans, Xulio Lorenzo, Pablo Carpintero, Massimo Ferrante, Harry.C (Milladoiro), Ramon Rodriguez (Ex Coetus), Pandereteras sen Fronteiros.
