    Rosa and Aida are two sisters living together in the small village of Moscoso. Chisco is a young song-collector and friend of them. They are singing together after dining.
    They're singing in galician (not in Spanish), most of the people talk about the Celtic influences of Galician, a few talk about the big Arabic influence too (the Arab have been in Spain for a while, leaving part of their culture).
    If you're interested in Galician voices, you can find more sounds, songs and video on the website from the documentary project I have done about this subject at the end of my study called TEMPO DA RECOLLEITA.

    And if you are interested in song-field-recording, Alan Lomax is definitely the master!

    This is a nicely recorded piece. You can tell it's a group of real people in the kitchen. There's an ambience and a reflectivity to the voice if it were. If one was ignorant they were listening to Spanish, they might find Arabic hints in those rhythms.
