La Morera de Montsant
Coinciding with the Vin Blanc wine event, the Terrer Festival comes to the village of Escaladei with Balaustre, Cobla Alta del Llemosí, made up of musicians from the Tarragona region linked to the national music school ESMUC. This project sets out to explore the full potential of the “loud” or outdoor music of the Catalan Renaissance in all its maximum sound potential. Hence the use of the word “Llemosí” in their full name. This word, of Occitan origin, was formerly used to refer to the whole of the Catalan language and we have extrapolated it to cover the music to be heard in these regions. The ensemble consists of a quartet of chirimias (instruments in the oboe family) and percussion.
Daniel Carbonell, soprano chirimia
Jaume Cuartero, contralto chirimia
Sònia Arias, contralto chirimia
Oriol Olivé, tenor chirimia
Òscar “Titus” Prats, drums
Marc Vall, drums
