Close your eyes and imagine a landscape you don’t see but do feel. Are you in the countryside or in the city? Is it summer, spring, winter or autumn? Morning or night? We offer you a walk with your ears wide open to discover our natural and human environment through the sounds and music that are born from these sounds.

Rooted music, many of them rediscovered for the occasion and performed from a contemporary perspective by five musicians who drink from both the traditional world and the most current music.

CHOREOGRAPHY

And up here on the mountain
the cuckoo sang there.
When the goats make wool,
we will do good.

The partridge sings at dawn,
the partridge on the floor,

because he can't party.

If you ever thought about it
that everyone was flat,
and now you have come to know
that some coasts are there.

ROUND COBLES

Traditional song. Arrangement for synthesizer, diatonic accordion, tenor, cracked cane, tambourine, hands, voices and field recordings from the Fonoteca de Catalunya.


Florida carnation
look out the window,
that I want to read you a letter
with your radiance.


Moraduix knocks on the door
low carnation to open;
for the love of strawberry
carnation died.


If I were orandeta,
summer swallow,
in the bed you sleep in
he would go and make the nest there.


What taller windows
always with admirers;
outside the air runs
and inside my love.

I have planted strawberries
in the month of July;
I have sown them clarosetes
and the sun has died for me.

The boxes are made in the reclots
and in the mountains the rosemary;
now I have a safe time
maid if you want to come.

Around this house
the laurels are in bloom,
and in the faces of the girls
the angels are written there.

It is raining and snowing in the square
and in the bell-tower there is sun,
and on Mary's balcony
a nightingale sings.


THE GRIVA, THE THUNDER AND THE ROOSTER

Traditional song. Arrangement for trumpet, ukulele, diatonic accordion, bass clarinet, drums and vocals.
Note: In the Pallars dialect it is called 'gay' to refer to the jay, a bird closer to the thrush and thrush than the domestic rooster. It could well be that the song, collected in the Pallars, refers to this bird and not to the rooster.


I go by this torrent;
sing the thrush,
sing the thrush,
I go by this torrent;
sings the thrush, the thrush and the rooster.


There are three apples in the apple tree;
that of three, one,
that of three, one,
There are three apples in the apple tree;
that of three one fell.


I go by this torrent;
eat the apple,
eat the apple,
I go by this torrent;
eat the apple,
the thrush and the rooster.


And the thrush sings like this:
The other two,
the other two,
And the thrush sings like this:
The other two for me.


I go by this torrent;
sing the thrush,
sing the thrush,
I go by this torrent;
sings the thrush, the thrush and the rooster.
