(p.74) Chapter Three Sound and Vision: All Roads Lead to Santiago
Peripheral Visions / Global Sounds

José Colmeiro

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examine the interaction of roots and routes, tradition and mobility, in contemporary Galician audiovisual culture, focusing on the cultural resignification of the ancient pilgrim’s Road to Saint James (Camino de Santiago) in the global age, and the transformation of Santiago de Compostela into a global theme park of Galicianness. It examines several audiovisual productions by Chano Piñeiro, The Chieftains, and Carlos Núñez that metaphorically travel in time and space, where experimentation with cinema and Celtic music merges old and modern forms and transcends spatiotemporal barriers, repositioning Galician culture on the global map.

Keywords:   Santiago de Compostela, Pilgrimage, invented traditions, theme parks, The Chieftains, Carlos Núñez, Chano Piñeiro, Celtic music
