Alan Lomax la menciona en sus diarios, si bien no tenemos sus grabaciones:

Next came a song by the emigrant daughter, Senora Edi Martinez, a song which she learned here in Finisterre when a child. I asked her if she had had voice training, but she denied this. [...]
Then Senora Edi played three spoons, holding two of them tightly together with their concave sides facing, and passing the third spoon rapidly back and forth between the other tow, and led two of her friends in singing a Muiniera whose tune, they felt, is part of Finisterre. The song says "Christ of Finisterre, I am not here begging for beard but for a young man who shakes the floor when he walks through this house".
