Welcome to the 4th edition of Labyrinth Catalunya!
Labyrinth Catalunya is an initiative aiming to promote the work of the Labyrinth Musical Workshop of Crete in Catalonia, Spain, as well as all over Europe. It is based in Cardedeu (Barcelona) and works in close collaboration with the original centre based in Greece which was founded in 1982 by Ross Daly and awarded with the European Citizen’s Prize in 2012. Both have the goal of initiating young people into a creative approach to traditional musical idioms from various parts of the world. In Labyrinth we organize seminars and concerts featuring some of the greatest master musicians from all over the world.
The 1st edition of “Labyrinth in Catalunya” took place in May 2016, and since then we have kept an annual meeting every Easter at spring-time! The forthcoming spring of 2019 we are preparing for the 4th edition, by far the most complete for the festival: Word-class musicians and teachers offering 10 seminars that cover a wide variety of the worlds musical traditions, with both classical and contemporary approaches, including recording of acoustic instruments, percussion, greek songs and dances, violin and cello in modal music, fretless guitar, turkish and ottoman music, arab music & oud, balkan music and clarinet as well as singing and improvisación in medieval music!
Be sure to check our full program of seminars and concerts and we look forward to welcome you again next April 12-22 at Cardedeu / Barcelona!
