The word 'Noega' refers to an Ástur old fort town placed in Torres cape, the northest place in Asturias.
Eventually, Noega inhabitants moved to neighbour roman city Gigia, nowadays named Gijón or Xixón.
Noega Pipe Band was created in 1991, and by 2005 Pablo Rodríguez Alonso (pipe master and a piano and baroque recorder qualified musician) became the band's director, paired with Arsenio Ruiz González, drum master, who carries on with the splendid job made by Manuel Cordero for years.
During all of these years, Noega has performed in many Asturian, Spanish and international events.
