In the spring of 2021, a new band emerges in the field of the Galician music scene. Forged in the “foliadas” nights of the pub Casa das Crechas, located in Santiago de Compostela, and inspired by sound files and popular songbooks, Ailá was born, an artistic proposal ready to bring root music and its universal energy closer.
With tradition as its flag and as a way of life, and with a repertoire that is committed to the hybridization of popular music with current sounds, Ailá wants to open new paths to spread the love of dance and traditional music. The loose ones, the gripped ones. The “xotas”, the waltzes. From folk groups to “charangas” that make up the collective identity. And the key to its formula is as precise as the obviousness of its premise: dance is inseparable from festive music.
