Exili. Cor País Meu
When:

Category:
Altres Activitats Històric

Description

Exile is a recital of popular songs of yesterday and today that recalls and pays testimony to the exodus of thousands of people before, during and after the Spanish Civil War.

 

                                                                  Friday, 10th June 2011

8 pm at the “La Societat” auditorium in La Jonquera

 

The show ends with a song of hope so that never again will anyone be forced to leave their home and land. The music alternates with the reading of historical accounts and poetry related with the events. We also offer the chance to include poems and texts written by local authors in the places where the show is performed. This is accompanied by a video creation with documentary pictures of the war and the landscapes of the bordering areas through which those exiled had to pass.

 

Cor País Meu performs the songs with simple stage movements but full of honest expressivity: because Exile is not so much a dramatic performance as a historical witness. We intend this to be a heartfelt homage to the people who suffered and fought for their freedom, a reminder of their value and of the need today to defend coexistence, freedom and respect for ourselves as a community.

COR PAÍS MEU began in late 2009 as a polyphonic ensemble following the path started in 1999 as the Choir of the Aula de Música Tradicional i Popular (AMTP), at the Department of Culture of the Government of Catalonia, always under the direction of Ramon Manent. Throughout these years, the Choir has included AMTP students, alumni and teachers as well as other singers interested in the project.

 

The ensemble bases its work on the traditional and popular Catalan and Western Mediterranean repertoire, approached through the more common and spontaneous a cappella techniques and always presented to the public without an apparent conductor.

 

In its more than ten year life, the Choir has performed many times around Catalonia and has also often performed in Occitania and the island of Sardinia.
