Asturiana Mining Company

Festival 2012
Asturiana Mining Compnay

It was the American Michael Lee Wolfe who founded Asturiana Mining Company in 1998 with well known musicians from the Asturian folk, rock and jazz scene. The band made its first record in the year 2000 with the title Patrimonio. In 2011 Asturiana Mining Company presented Sones por Beto Velasco, a record with the voice and the bagpipes of maestro Alberto Varillas, the vocal qualities of Silvia Fernández and the zydeco accordeon of Maria Álvarez. The Asturiana Mining Company likes to try new things, combining well known Asturian folk song with new creations, which only sound traditional. This is certainly the case with the song Si nun conoces Val.louta, the winning song of the Asturian Premiu al meyor cantar 2012.
