Program

Arnau Obiols is convinced that the Pyrenees region and its musical traditions are at death’s door. He knows what he’s talking about. Perhaps, then, the only way to pay tribute to them, revive them or give them a new life in the twenty-first century is to live them, singing them as someone living in the mountains would sing them today. Everyday life is not what it was, and time does not pass at the same tempo as before. “There was more singing in everyday life”, Obiols explains. It was also “more collective”. As in the city, the sense of community has diminished. Given this individualism, Obiols, who is from La Seu d’Urgell, decided that his new project should speak of the mountains as a natural space and say less about their inhabitants. All he needs is his own voice, drums and a little electronic equipment. His music is rooted in what remains of a tradition, an intangible heritage that retains the flavour of a past that has (almost) been lost and whose present may be ephemeral.
