Carlos Núñez is one of Galicia's most revered artists, undisputed as the tradition's greatest piper. He is also enormously popular across the rest of Spain and throughout Europe and Latin America. He is already known in Irish music thanks to his early "adoption" by The Chieftains (so close was his musical and personal connection he was dubbed "The Seventh Chieftain"). He played on many of the acclaimed Irish group's CDs including Treasure Island, The Long Black Veil, the Grammy-winning Santiago (inspired by Galician music), and Voice of Ages.

Núñez then launched his own solo career, starting with his 1996 debut, Brotherhood of Stars. With platinum sales in Spain, Brotherhood was a remarkable breakthrough for both Núñez and Galician music. His newest album, Discover, showcases the range and depth of this groundbreaking instrumentalist, who has taken Galician music to all corners of the world. Proof is in the stunning list of guests that appear on Discover, including the Chieftains, Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Sinéad O’Connor, Waterboys frontman Mike Scott, Laurie Anderson, Hector Zazou, and many others.
