For the third time, we have a real balfolk with an extra large portion of violins. De Poelband, the student orchestra of the Art Academy De Poel conducted by Naomi Vercauteren, will open the dance. With a stage full of fiddles and other instruments, they are too eager to give all their energy to the dancefloor.

Caamaño&Ameixeiras is a duo from Galicia tied to traditional music and dance. This duo formed by Sabela Caamaño (chromatic accordion) and Antía Ameixeiras (violin and voice) did a large number of concerts, mostly in their native Galicia, but also in other parts of Spain and other countries. Mainly instrumental in nature, although also incorporating some carefully chosen vocal themes, Caamaño&Ameixeiras take tradition as their starting point, understood as something alive and in constant change, to later create their own language, with personal and intimate compositions and arrangements that maintain the popular essence but incorporate contemporary elements.
Aire! is their first album, produced by the renowned musician Diego Galaz, where they have such outstanding collaborations as Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Fetén Fetén, Abraham Cupeiro, Xavi Lozano, Carola Ortiz, Pablo Martín, Apel·les Carod or El Pana.
