            Nuñez hails from Spain’s northwest region of Galicia, which is known for its vibrant tradition of Celtic music. He began playing the ancestral bagpipe of Galicia, the gaita, at the age of 8. According to Nuñez’s website, he has since become known as “Galicia’s foremost traditional music ambassador.” His music blends the up-tempo energy of pop music with a respect for Galicia’s musical legacy.
