Ethno Catalonia 2019 will take place between 5-14 July, and applications are already opened! Join us!


Greetings! Are you a professional or amateur musician, group, instrumentalist/singer passionate about World, Traditional, Folk music?
JOIN OUR SUMMER ORCHESTRA at Ethno Catalonia 2019! Whether you come from somewhere in Catalonia/Spain or from the other side of the globe, this year we are calling 40 musicians aged 18-30 years to join us for the experience of a life-time, sharing music, and performing at international Summer festivals in the Barcelona region, between 5th and 14th July! Read more and apply!

Ethno Catalonia is part of an international program held in 18 countries. We will be starting our 10-day tuneful journey at our Music Camp in the beautiful scenic Mediterranean town of Banyoles (Catalonia/Spain, 30 min from Girona, 1h from Barcelona), close to a beautiful lake, where you can bathe.



During the first 5 days, Ethno Catalonia participant musicians will be immersed in both global Folk, World and Traditional music, through peer-to-peer song learning in Daily Workshops & Rehearsals, coordinated by our professional Artistic Leaders, and also in local music.

Our lab will be the most buzzing venue in the region (the Ateneu de Banyoles, with sunny rehearsal rooms and a concert hall), for the group to prepare the final repertoire for the final tour. It all takes place right downtown, where participants also stay at the comfortable Banyoles International Youth Hostel. Besides performing and jamming at the main local festival (individual or group performances), there will be Cultural Activities and a new experience happening every afternoon/evening as part of the Ethno program!


You will embark on a final 4-day Final Concert Tour around Catalonia.


A special moment is always Ethno's final concert, performed back in Banyoles (14th July) at the main square, celebrating the experience with the locals, big time!
