With more than 18 years of experience, Quempallou is one of the quintessential folk bands in Galicia. In every concert not only they aim to bring joy with their music they also strive to transmit their social commitment.No strings attached, they make traditional music with a present-day point of view, always aware of their origins but always looking forward.Their discographic work serves as a clear example of their constant musical evolvement that lead them to achieve a characteristic and personal sound. From "Quempallou" with a strong basis in folk music, through "Estremonías" and the power of its words to "Polo Aire" showing a clear musical maturity in their own compositions and neat arrangements. "Vellas Novas" is their long time awaited and latest work, full of musical nuances and influences that can only be gathered by so many years of experience.A strong foundation on traditional Galician folk lays the ground for new arrangements, lyric adaptations and pieces. That's how they achieve a characteristic style with the help of traditional percussion, accordion, strings, flutes, bagpipes and of course, voice.On October 25th, 2016, Quempallou announced they were splitting up.
