Anxo Lorenzo is a new breed of musician who sees no barriers when experimenting with traditional and contemporary music and has the ability of seamlessly amalgamating the two into vibrant, fresh and new melodies and rhythms.

He has managed to fuse the unadulterated natural sound of the Gaita (Galician Bagpipes) with a wide variety of alternative music styles including; rock, pop, jazz, flamenco, hip-hop and electronic, converting the Gaita into an avant-garde instrument without giving-up his celtic roots.

Anxo has collaborated with a host of artists including; Lunasa, Kathryn Tickell, Michael McGoldrick, The Chieftains, Daimh, The National Jazz Orchestra, Luigi Lai, Diarmaid Moynihan, Brian Finnegan, Xarabal, Om/Off, Jaula de Grillos, Tejedor, Angus Mackenzie, Iain MacDonald and German Diaz.

As a classically trained musician, soloist and composer Anxo continues with his research into various fields of music and gives master classes all over the world.
