Part of EthnoWorld, international program held in more than 40 countries

We will be starting our 9-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.

Daily workshops, rehearsals & cultural activities

During the first 6 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.

Banyoles Local Music School (EMMB) will be the lab for the group to prepare the final repertoire for the final tour. It all takes place just in the very center of the town, 10 minutes walk from of the Banyoles swimming lake.Participants will stay at a comfortable hostel. Besides performing and jamming at the main local festival (individual or group performances), there will be other cultural activities and experiences as part of the Ethno program, such as the night concerts held by emerging folk bands at the main square.

Concert tour

You will embark on a final 3-day Final Tour in different venues of Catalonia.

A special moment is always Ethno’s final concert, the last concert of the Festival and the EthnoTour, performed inside the Auditorium back in Banyoles, celebrating the whole experience with the local public, big time!
