mainly aims to remake of the Asturian traditional music by following
similar trends on current european folk genres. Our band makes use of
a methology related to the orchestration, performance techniques and
arrangements which allow use to achieve our goal. Thus, we enhance our
sound by combining both the Asturian orchestration and the more general
and current Atlantic European types without losing our distinctiveness.
There are various sources which provide us with our working material
we usually work with: folk song books, choral scores, manuscripts harmonized
from traditional songs, sound files from ethnographic research groups,
folk music which is present in our everyday life, and, finally, our
own original compositions based on traditional structures and rhythms.
FELPEYU's main musical audience is located is the whole Asturian society
to which we direct our work and from which is derived. That is to say,
we intend to be an agent in the recovery and authentication of the dignity
of Asturian culture.
