Pirineos Sur, a meeting point

23 years ago the Diputación de Huesca launched the Festival Pirineos Sur. A meeting point between continents, cultures and sounds, which already during its first years has become the national benchmark in its genre before  pain speaks of multiculturalism or globalization.

It is also a future challenge to strengthen cultural tourism in the province of Huesca and more specifically in the regions of the Valle de Tena and the Serrablo. Two decades later, it retains the philosophy of his birth. The International Festival of Cultures Pirineos Sur musically travels the whole world. Music and culture from five continents and monographic editions devoted to creators from various countries, regions and musical movements.

Glatt & Verkehrt

The 19th issue of the renowned Krems music festival takes place in July 2015—as usual, in close cooperation with Radio Ö1—in the cultural world heritage of the Wachau region to take its visitors on a musical voyage of exploration around the globe. Every year, Glatt&Verkehrt defines the phenomenon of world music all over again: from originaltraditional to contemporary music, from world premieres to unorthodox artistic encounters and exciting new projects. The featured artists from (almost) all over the world have one particular thing in common: their involvement with their own musical roots, be they traditional folk music, jazz, classical music, or the avant-garde.
