Rondalla Espanola - The Magic Of Spain


As you know, we like to do a little armchair travel here at Third Island, and today is no exception. So lets whisk off to sun-drenched Spain, and the romantic sound of mandolins, castanets and Spanish guitars. This album could well be called 'The 1001 Castanets' as the sound of them permeates the entire album.

A 'Rondella' is an instrumental group consisting mostly of strings, mandolins and guitars with a little light percussion added. Today, most Rondellas flourish in Aragon, Navarra and Valencia, and interpret the folklore of each region.
