Produced by Kelterán for Musica Mancina.

All compositions are traditional from Ireland, Scotland, England, French-Canada and USA except "A Bruxa" composed by Anton Seoane (Galicia).

Musical arrangements by Sergio Pugnalin and Marco Giaccaria.

"Kelterán continua in questo secondo lavoro la propria personale rilettura della enorme tradizione cosiddetta "Celtica" e di tutto ciò che ad essa è correlata. Ecco, quindi, brani irlandesi (n. 1, 2, 5, 7 e l’inizio del n.9), scozzesi (n.4) e galiziani (n.6) accostati a ballads inglesi (n.3 e n.8) o brani provenienti dal Nuovo Mondo (il seguito del n.9). La ricerca timbrica si spinge sino all’utilizzo di percussioni appartenenti alla cultura musicale araba ed alle nuove tecnologie digitali. Bentornati all’ascolto di Kelterán!".
