This chapter examines the redefinition of Galician folk music in a global context and its role in the construction of a modern Galician cultural identity. Since the late 1970s the recovery of the Galician musical and cultural heritage has gone hand in hand with innovation, transformation and hybridization. Thus, somewhat paradoxically, one of the key cultural expressions of modern Galician identity, reflected in the distinctness and richness of its traditional music, is a result of a complex process of hybridization: the merging of the old and the new, the rural and the urban, the local and the global, such as the merging of Galician folk with Pan-Celtic music.Case studies of Carlos Núñez, Milladoiro, Luar na Lubre, Emilio Cao, Cristina Pato, Uxía Senlle, and Mercedes Peón.

Keywords:   Galician bagpipes, Celtic music, Carlos Núñez, Milladoiro, Luar na Lubre, Emilio Cao, Cristina Pato, Uxía Senlle, Mercedes Peón, Luis Emilio Batallán
