Tanxedoira?s Rondalla was born under the aegis of the Parish of Santa Maria de Oza, in 1984, under the initiative of Xulio Loureiro González. Since its inception is framed in the Cultural Association Tanxedoira, and was formerly known as the parish: Santa Maria de Oza. There, they began to be companions of the Juan Vila?s Choir, while developing their instrumental vocation. Also during that time they started showing the first signs of artistic peculiarity, since the group included the flute as their characteristic instrument.
After the separation of Tanxedoira Association from the parish, the Rondalla experienced a remarkable boom in style, musical performances and wealth. Nowadays, there are about 20 people aged between 9 and 65, who play flutes, mandolins, guitars and varied percussion; a wide range of melodies of diverse origin, highlighting mainly in South American music, traditional Russian music, movie soundtracks and original compositions.
Tanxedoira?s Rondalla conducted countless performances by the Galician geography at the Colon and Rosalia de Castro Theatres on several occasions; Rondallas pageants in Padrón and Lorbé; Habaneras Festival in Coruña, accompanying the Hogar de Santa Margarita?s Choir; in Pablo Iglesias square, within the conference against drug addiction "No barrio hai alternativas"; or in Baio, invited by the Cultural Association Adro. In 95, we must highlight their performance in Rosalia de Castro Theatre, invited by Follas Novas Polyphonic Choir, in an act of support to the workers in the Military Hospital, and the offering to the Patron Saint of A Coruña.
They were present in the 150th Anniversary of the Circle of Craftsmen, in 96, and at the House of Culture of Valdoviño. They participated for years in the cultural circuits of the Provincial Council.

In addition, they were invited several times by other musical organizations, among which the Carlos Seijo Association, from Betanzos, in its twentieth anniversary in the year 99.
