The Czech Music Crossroads has invited Mapamundi Música to take charge of the participation of Spain as a partnering country in the 2023 edition.
The international conference and showcase festival Czech Music Crossroads was established in 2014. Since then they are building a bridge for musicians, who have an unique opportunity to establish contacts with experts from all over the world and a safe platform for international networking and skill-sharing.
In 2023, musicians from the partner countries Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland will perform at the Czech Music Crossroads as per tradition. The guest countries this year are Slovenia and Spain.
The three Spanish artists provided by Mapamundi Música are representatives of three cultures, three languages of the kaleidoscope that is the Spanish land:
Vigüela, from the centre, Toledo, the land of Don Quixote, Castilian untamed culture. They will perform with their new line up of quintet.
Xabi Aburruzaga, from the Basque Country, with one of his most representative instruments, the trikitixa. He will play with two musicians and two dancers.
And Xurxo Fernandes, from Galicia, with the tradition of the strong voices and the tambourine, in his project Levaino!, which connects the Atlantic with the Mediterranean. They will be a septet.
