Tradicionàrius and Santa Eulàlia

Plaça de Sant Jaume
Friday, 9, at 20.15 pm

For only the second time, Tradicionàrius will come down from the Vila de Gràcia to Plaça de Sant Jaume! This year, the 37th Tradicionàrius International Folk Festival will fill the Santa Eulàlia Festivities with music, in a folk dance and concert.

At 8.15 pm, Glam Folk will take the stage to perform a repertoire of well-known and traditional songs, along with other musical genres, to get the public dancing a “xotis” to the beat of Oques Grasses, a “ball pla” with Strombers and a mazurka, to the sound of Metallica.

At 10 pm, it will be the turn of La Cosina. From El Baix Camp, the group will invite you to sing and dance their joyful but committed songs in a highly festive live concert. They will also be presenting their record Hores vinguin, which calls for a return to social life in town squares, collective struggle, love for the land, the role of the elderly and appreciation for all those moments in which we realise we are one people, neighbourhood or family.
