6- MARIA SOLIÑA

This song tells the story of a woman unfairly accused by the Spanish Inquisition for being a witch. She became a symbol of Galicia oppressed under Franco’s regime.

The singer is ex Madredeus Teresa Salgueiro accompanied by Phil Cunnigham, Liam O’Flynn, Juan Manuel Cañizares and Renaud Garcia Fons.

You can see here an instrumental version performed by Carlos and Cunningham for one of his BBC programs about Galicia.
