Llull Year goes to Cuba with a concert by Maria del Mar Bonet

Music.  Havana,  22/05/2016

Llull Year arrives in Cuba this Sunday, 22nd May, with the concert ‘Alenar Llull’, given by Maria del Mar Bonet and Borja Penalba. The concert, which will be held as part of ‘Barnasants in Cuba’, is one of the events celebrating Llull Year that the governments of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands are promoting together. It will take place on Sunday, 22nd May in the emblematic El Gato Tuerto hall in Havana, with a press conference beforehand at which the figure of Ramon Llull will be explained. 

Maria del Mar Bonet’s concert in Havana has been organized in the context of the opening concert of the 21st edition of the Barnasants Festival in Cuba. Since 2011, the Barnasants Festival has had an important international side to it, each year inviting a country or city and organizing concerts to showcase the country or city in question. In recent editions it has established collaborations with Uruguay, Venezuela and Cuba with two-way concerts. The artistic collaboration with the chosen countries makes it possible to pool cultural wealth, independent creation and construct a rich and often avant-garde cultural heritage. It is in this context that Maria del Mar Bonet is presenting her album AMIC, AMAT in Havana, inspired by the work of Ramon Llull, in which she sets passages from Jacint Verdaguer’s Perles del Llibre d’Amic e d’Amat de Ramon Llull to music, accompanied by guitarist Borja Penalba.

The concert will be presented at a press conference with the participation of the Director of the Barnasants Festival, Pere Camps, and the director of the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes, Laura Borràs, presenting the Barnasants Festival. It will also serve to highlight the life and work of Ramon Llull as a source of inspiration.

Maria del Mar Bonet has spent her career, stretching over 40 years, singing the popular music of the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and Valencia, and setting many Catalan poets to music
