Music has always accompanied key moments in the lives of the people. In the rural world, these moments have been in a context of life rooted in nature, festivals and traditions. Now that depopulation and the need to return to the countryside are being discussed publicly, it is a good time to talk about how music and song have a place in rural life. Who better to revive them than a singer-songwriter like Amancio Prada, whose repertory, full of poetry, spirituality and tradition, reflects the life of country folk? He is a highly acclaimed singer-songwriter, both in Spain and internationally, who has performed in famous theatres, auditoriums and cathedrals during a career that has produced albums such as Caravel de caraveles, Canciones de amor y celda and Canciones del alma.

The poet and journalist Carlos Aganzo, author of books such as La flauta de los bárbaros and Jardín con biblioteca, will host this conversation.
