We kicked off in 2016 joining becoming the 15th Ethno project around the world. The first edition of Ethno Catalonia brought together 30 musicians from Catalonia/Spain, Algeria, England, Estonia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Jordan, Kurdistan, Scotland, Slovenia, Sweden and Uganda!
Playing over 25 different instruments, our first participants took the picturesque town of Banyoles, where our music camp is located, between 10th and 17th July - learning and teaching each other Traditional & Folk songs, digging into local traditional music for 10 Summer Folk days by the shores of a gorgeous swimming lake.
The Ethno Catalonia group made sure to rehearse, jam and also perform individual/group concerts perform at the main venue in Banyoles (Ateneu de Banyoles), as the Ethno camp grew into a small folk festival for the people of Banyoles to participate in and enjoy.
Finally, the newly created Ethno orchestra took off for a 3-day tour at local Summer festivals in Palafrugell and Moià, then bringing back their music to Banyoles for the final concert at the main square, with the whole town celebrating!
In 2017, we are welcoming 40 musicians from anywhere in the world to join Ethno Catalonia, between 7th and 17th of July, with the Ateneu de Banyoles venue as our music lab, the lake as our inspiration, improved accommodation, as well as a 4-day concert tour at international festivals in Barcelona, Huesca, Tàrrega and a final gig in Banyoles!
