From Galicia. Talabarte is the creative meeting place of three veterans of the Galician music scene: violinist Quim Farinha, accordionist Pedro Pascual and double-bassist Kin García.

Together they create free-flowing compositions drawn from their deep knowledge and love of the region’s popular and traditional music and informed by their wide experience with music of other latitudes from jazz, folk, tango and pan-European traditions. With their relaxed sense of intuitive improvisation they bring together contemporary and traditional influences to create a compelling new concept in acoustic folk music.

Pedro Pascual - diatonic accordion
