Welcome to Ethno Catalonia!


Ethno Catalonia is a Summer Music Camp/Festival & Concert Tour for musicians (professional or hobby instrumentalists/singers and groups) from all over the world, with a great passion for Traditional/Folk/World music, to collaborate, jam, rehearse & go on-the-road at a final Concert Tour in international Festivals around the Barcelona region!


Ethno Catalonia starts its 10-day tuneful journey at our music camp in the scenic Mediterranean town of Banyoles (Catalonia/Spain), close to a beautiful swimming lake, during the first 6 days to immerse participants in both global folk/traditional music through peer-to-peer song learning, and also in local music (Flamenco etc.) and leisure activities.


Daily workshops/rehearsals are conducted by our professional Artistic Leaders, at the most buzzing venue in the region (Ateneu de Banyoles, with sunny rehearsal rooms and a concert hall), for the group to prepare the final repertoire. This takes place right downtown, where participants also stay at the comfortable Banyoles International Youth Hostel.

Meanwhile, musicians also play and jam at the main local festival (individual/group performances), before going on a 4-day final concert tour by bus. In 2017, Ethno Catalonia will take place between 7-17 July, with tour concerts scheduled for
Sant Pau Recinte Modernista World Music Concerts (Barcelona), Paupaterres Festival (Tàrrega), Pirineos Sur Festival (Huesca), and a final concert back in Banyoles to perform at the main square and celebrate the experience with the town locals! 


Join us, whether you are professional musician or a hobby instrumentalist/singer, aged 18-30 years, coming from a local town or from the other side of the globe! Ethno is all about showing the world the magic of bringing together peers from any culture, to share and create a unique musical experience!


Ethno Catalonia is part of a global family and an active network of musicians, Ethno World, currently present in over 15 countries in Europe and Asia, which was created by Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) in 1990. Ethno is an important meeting place for young musicians from the world over, who meet together to perform, learn new music face-to-face, collaborate, share different experiences, cultures and friendship. Dialogue, tolerance and understanding are essential values not only within the Ethno World, but also in the relationship with local communities.
