Alma de buxo

Alma de buxo

"Alma De Buxo" is an album by Susana Seivane.

The title means "Soul of the boxwood tree". It is a play of words, meaning the wooden bagpipe chanters that she plays, and also Susana herself running through the forest on the cover art. She is depicted as a kind of sprite. This has a more powerful sound than her first album, with folk-rock arrangements and an orchestra playing a rumba on one track. Some charm has been lost at the same time. Track 11 has Susana's father, Xose Manuel Seivane playing bagpipes in a house session, with background cheering and laughing, followed without a break by a folk-rock band version of the same tune, acknowledging her debt to her parents. There are two songs, sung in Gallego. The song "Muineira de Alen" by a female chorus is so uplifting, you wish there had been another track with these singers. As before Brais Maceiras (accordion) and Rodrigo Romani (acoustic guitar, harp) play key roles in the arrangements. Recorded 2002. Running time 47 minutes 26 sec.
