Sardana audition with Lluïsos Cobla
Sardana audition (Barcelona; traditional dance; for all ages).
The sardana, a traditional dance of uncertain origins, is today regarded as Catalonia’s national dance, even though in the 19th century it was much better known in the counties of Girona than Barcelona. However, the first La Mercè festivals in Catalonia’s capital began to incorporate the traditions of the country’s other counties, including human towers known as “castells”, which were popular in the southern counties of Catalonia, and the sardana, which today is the dance that identifies a whole people. At this year’s La Mercè you will be able to attend a sardana audition featuring the sardana orchestra Lluïsos Cobla.
