Luar Na Lubre

EtymologyLuar is Galician for moonlight; lubre is a magical forest in which the Celtic druids cast their spells.BiographyDuring its career, this musical group has spread Galician music and culture. The band became famous worldwide after Mike Oldfield took interest in their music. Oldfield fell in love with their song "O son do ar" (The sound of the air, composed by Bieito Romero). Oldfield's cover is on his Voyager album, entitled "Song of the Sun". In 1992 he offered help in their worldwide tour. Their tour together was called Tubular Bells 3. Now it is one of the most famous groups from Galicia. Their first singer Rosa Cedrón is also featured with Mike Oldfield in some songs from his live concert at Horse Guards Parade, near St James's Park, London. Rosa Cedrón left the band in 2005 and Sara Vidal became the new singer. In 2010, the group's leader, Bieito Romero, said the group was "fully fit".The group recorded a version of Gerdundula by Status Quo.The Spanish folk metal band Mägo de Oz made a cover of Luar na Lubre's song "Memoria da Noite."Their most famous singles are "O son do ar", "Tu gitana" and "Chove en Santiago". Most of their lyrics are in the Galician language. Their song "Nau", written by Bieito Romero is about Galicia as a ship with no direction.The song "Downstream" by Shira Kammen on her album "Music of waters" appears to have used its own cover of "O son do ar" in a segment of the song.
