Amancio Prada in conversation with Carlos Aganzo

Dialogues with the Earth

Segovia 2021, 

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.
