This weekend we invite you to enjoy the Mediterranean music in Valencia. The “Polirítmia” festival offers us the opportunity to travel to the Mediterranean countries through music. Our Spanish school El Rincón del Tándem tells you more in this blog 😊

Mediterranean music arrives in Valencia with the “Polirítmia” Festival. A nice project that stands out in the cultural agenda of this weekend.

Therefore, after a delicious meal, some rest and going to the beach, we invite all our students of the Spanish course to undertake this melodious journey through Mediterranean cultures.

The “Polirítmia” Festival combines concerts and workshops about Mediterranean music and dance. Its objective is to celebrate the cultural richness of this area through diversity and musical fusion.

Throughout the weekend the Teatro Principal de Valencia will host a very varied musical program that reflects a convergence of Mediterranean styles and sound traditions and that celebrates dialogue between peoples and the encounter between cultures.
