NATURE & TRANSFORMATION 2022


WHAT IS NATURE & TRANSFORMATION

On the banks of the river Farfanya, in an open space in a privileged natural environment, Catalan guitarist Josep-Manel Vega offers, for the second time, a show of improvised music.

After almost two years searching for inspiring spaces to develop his live music, in the framework of the project IMPROVISING AROUND THE WORLD, he recreates each of these significant moments in his concerts. A performance in which the beauty of the music and the instantaneousness of the interpretation represent a deep experience, which seeks communion through sympathy with the audience and not just entertainment.

The first edition of NATURE & TRANSFORMATION took place on 5 June 2021 with a single concert lasting more than two hours. This second edition features the participation of percussionist Ramon Rodríguez and is extended to two days, becoming a micro-festival.


WHAT IS EL MOLÍ DE TARTAREU

A territory in the middle of nowhere. By day, forests of oak and holm oak trees, and fields of crops all around. By night, one of the clearest night skies on the planet, recognised as a Starlight tourist destination (the best places in the world to contemplate starlight).

The guesthouse of the isolated country house EL MOLÍ DE TARTAREU is renowned for the quality of its service and, in particular, for the quality of its cuisine.

FULL tickets include Saturday dinner at the restaurant. PLUS tickets also include accommodation and breakfast at the guesthouse.

FESTIVAL tickets provide a complete two-day experience. They include dinner on Friday and the evening concert.

"The virtuoso guitarist merged his music with nature. Instead of playing the instrument, caresses it with a unique and personal dexterity. What was experienced, felt and enjoyed (...) becomes unforgettable."
