"Giants de La Patum"
"Catalonia is a country between Spain, France, the Pyrenees and Mediterranean Sea, and it has been a crossroad of many different cultures: Iberians, Phoenicians, Romans, Goths, Muslims. All of these different nations have left something to us. So our folk music is a mix between this old cultural inheritance and all of the new popular musics that had come from Europe during XIX century.
In this masterclass I want to explain you the different kinds of traditional/folk music, the instruments and also this dances or performances that had helped to keep the tradition, and why not, learn some tunes and songs. So please, bring your instruments "
