Posotopía is Obal's new album. A work based exclusively on the repertoire of José Manuel López López el Gaiteiro de Poso for him, dance and music were the same thing. Iván Costa, Jaime Rebollo and Diego Langarika have come together again to embark on this beautiful project, full of virtuosity and innovation for the Galician music of Raíz Manuel López is the bagpipe music of Terras de Cervantes and Navia de Suarna. Completely new and different melodies, improvisation, influences and a unique use of resources. The music-dance binomial, a way of understanding that part of living folklore. From these precepts we make our contribution to his music by reinterpreting the codes of this peculiar piper with our style. To make this album we have been working non-stop for three years, creating arrangements and melodies that will give Poso's repertoire the authentic OBAL sound. These three years were difficult times for those of us who make dance music, due to the pandemic that we all suffer. We don't stop working, as this video we made in confinement shows.
