During its career, this musical group has spread Galician music and culture. The band became famous worldwide after Mike Oldfield took interest in their music. Oldfield fell in love with their song "O son do ar" (The sound of the air, composed by Bieito Romero). Oldfield's cover is on his Voyager album, entitled "Song of the Sun". In 1992 he offered help in their worldwide tour. Their tour together was called Tubular Bells 3. Now it is one of the most famous groups from Galicia. Their first singer Rosa Cedrón is also featured with Mike Oldfield in some songs from his live concert at Horse Guards Parade, near St James's Park, London. Rosa Cedrón left the band in 2005 and Sara Vidal became the new singer. In 2010, the group's leader, Bieito Romero, said the group was "fully fit".
Their most famous singles are "Memoria da Noite", "Os Animais", "O son do ar", "Tu gitana" and "Chove en Santiago". Most of their lyrics are in the Galician language. Their song "Nau", written by Bieito Romero is about Galicia as a ship with no direction.
The second tune is from the Galician group Luar na Lubre from their album Plenilunio and is called "O Son do ar", composed by Bieto Romero (Canciones del Mundo)
