Mel de Meiga is a folk band founded by two ex-members of the Mutenrohi folk group, known by countless concerts in the best European festivals. After ten years performing, Carlos Campos and Iván Salgado are assuming the challenges of working in this new proposal; in order to achieve, they have recognized folk musicians: Pablo Dalama, the bagpiper, known by his interpretational precission, coming from bands like Os Cempés, Xochilmica or Mamá Cabra; Leo Vignola, the guitarist, the most veteran and who formed part of legendary 80´s groups like Labanda or Trafalgar; the drummer, Luis Vivas, a versatile instrumentalist due to participation in the formations of different styles: jazz, blues, funk,… Loren Tabarés is the bassist, the Abuña Jazz founding member, an 80´s jazz band that still works nowadays; and the voice of Nadia Fonseca, who provides character and sensibility to this compositions based in celtic melodies and rhythms whit a clear vinculation towards the traditional Galician music. All this, with pop sond and arrangements that makes their music reach to different kind of public (to all types of people).
"Crecente" is the name of this early work, in which ten songs roam always positive feelings with a mental intention and movement.
The album has been recorded by Jose Rubio and Iván Salgado in the Nocturnal Records studios in Ourense and mixed and mastered by the producer Gonso Pedrido. A note of interest is the collaborations of bag piper Anxo Lorenzo, percussionist David Outumuro and the string quintet Aurum Ensemble.
