POST-FOLK-ASTURIANU


¿What is that?

The post-folk is a new experience with Asturian trad music.

L-R

L-R are Leticia Baselgas (vocals, tambourine) and Rubén Bada (electric guitars, looper, effects). They create a unique sound, deconstructing and reinterpreting Asturian traditional music. Their mission is to retain the integrity of the traditional Asturian dance rhythms whilst embracing 21st century technology. They combine the sounds of their native Asturias with blues, rock and jazz. L-R call their music “post-folk” or “post-trad.”

¡Asturian trad music is alive! This is Asturian- post-folk.

"when will your fist album be published?"

Yes, friends, it´s time...

After two years playing our music at festivals and concerts, we believe that it is time to record an album for you. This way you will enjoy our music in your home. Many people have asked us about a new album so, we will be working on it.

¡This is the moment and we need your help!

Rubén Bada

Ruben Bada was born in Aviles, in the northern coast of Asturies, and raised in the Cape

Peñes area, where the Asturian language and culture are alive and vibrantal.

He began playing guitar at 14, learning both bouzouki and fiddle soon after.

Ruben started his recording career in 1998 with the band Xeliba with whom he recorded

two albums. Shortly after, he became a highly sought after studio musician and producer,

working with Asturian acts such as, Mari luz Cristobal, N’arba, Corquieu, Tejedor, Dixebra,

Llacín Pipe Band, Ú?, Alfredo González, and DRD. In 2000, Ruben won the Asturian

Traditional Music Contest on fiddle and in 2006 he was awarded “Best Instrumentalist”

in the Asturian Music Awards. Ruben has recorded on numerous high-profile albums

including John McSherry & Dónal O’Connor’s critically acclaimed album ‘Tripswitch’ and

John McSherry’s award winning album ‘Soma’ in 2010. He currently performs with

L-R, Aú?, Al?ce y Navaya, Alfredo González and the El Trasno de Cuaña Pipe Band. Besides his work with L-R, Ruben has is own musical project and he is a very much sought after session musician playing with several other bands in Asturias

Leticia Baselgas

Leticia Gonzalez is a very well known traditional singer and tambourine player in Asturies. She has been part of ethnographic groups such as “Vezos Astures” and “Muyeres”, where the role of women in traditional culture was reivindicated ¿??? celebrated through music and dance. Leti is also an accomplished traditional dancer and if you come to any “bailles” in Asturies you’ll probably meet here either dancing or providing songs and rhythm for the dancers.
