Juan Delgado and Sheila Blanco in conversation

Music, culture and traditions in Empty Spain

Venue: Biblioteca Pública de Segovia

Rural life has always been linked to music, through rituals and chants of propitiation. This is the area studied by the composer, sound designer, music producer and ethnomusicologist Juan Delgado, who specialises in Segovia province, where practices for the supplication of rain and other conditions that favour the annual cycle of farming labours were widespread until the 1970s. Delgado, whose study will soon be published in book form, has also recently received the Young Composers prize from the SGAE-CNDM Foundation for his composition Ad Pretedam Pluviam.

In a conversation about music and its cultural context, Delgado will talk to the pianist, singer and composer Sheila Blanco, an artist who has given a voice to the women authors of the Generation of 27.
