It’s been 30 years since Xabier first blew into a bagpipe until Coplas para Icía (2007). His curiosity enabled new experiences with pop(ular) music always on the horizon: Xacarandaina, Rumbadeira, his first field researches, a constant teaching activity, associations, contests, festivals, etc.
He then became a part of Nova Galega de Danza performing in the shows Alento, Engado and Tradicción between 2005 and 2009.
On early 2008 Berrogüetto knocked on Xabier’s door and the trip last till 2014, when the band announced its dissolution. During that time they released the albums Kosmogonías (2010) and O pulso da terra (2011).

Great music partners and friends such as Guadi Galego, Guillermo Fernández and Xosé Lois Romero took part in the aCadaCanto project and released the albums aCadaCanto (2012) and A Rosa D’Adina (2014).
He collaborated in many albums and concerts with different artists through the years: Carmen París, Xosé Manuel Budiño, Kepa Junquera, Guadi Galego and Os Cempés, among others. Moreover, he took his music to many places such as Mexico, Zimbabwe, Germany, Uruguay, Italy, Peru, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Argentina, Norway, Belgium, Cuba, Scotland, Ireland, etc.
In 2015 he released the album The Tambourine man with Adufeiras de Salitre.
