"Queimadas"

The “Queimada” is a traditional alcoholic drink and also quite a show: it consists of flamed eau-de-vie, accompanied by pieces of fruit, coffee beans and sugar, as well as a typical “meigallo” or spell that is recited.

Traditional music and dance

Galician music is unique and very different from traditional Spanish music. Typically Spanish instruments such as the guitar are not featured in Galician music, which is “Celtic” music, similar to that of Eire, Wales, Scotland and Brittany. The basic band is made up of one or two bagpipes, a drum and tambourines. Galician dances are also of Celtic origin: they share similarities with Irish or Scottish jigs and consist of quick movements.
