Carlos Núñez All over the world, Carlos Núñez is considered one one of the most charismatic and brilliant musicians. His charisma, his energy and his pioneering spirit have made him extremely popular, going beyond the limits of the instruments he plays (Galician horn - gaita - and recorders).

At the age of twelve he was invited to play as a solo artist a composition of the Irish Shaun Davey, with the Llorient Symphonic Orchestra. His skills in the study of the recorder at the Madrid Conservatory, made him earn the title "cum laude" and the "Exceptional" Award at the end of his studies. His first recording experience was in 1989, with the Chieftains, for the soundtrack of the movie "The Treasure Island", with Charlton Heston and Oliver Reed. When his first solo album was released in 1996, with the title A Irmandade das Estrelas, Carlos was already a universally known artist. Platinum record. In 2004 Carlos entered the world of cinema through the main door thanks to film director Amenábar, who wanted to use a piece from his first record for the film "The Sea Inside". At the end, Carlos was involved in most of the soundtrack, which was awarded an Oscar and fourteen Goyas, one of which also for the best music. Carlos Núñez has sold over one million records all over the world and he was honored in several countries. In Spain, he won the Ondas Awards and he was nominated twice for the Latin Grammys.
