Video 7/6/2018: Maria Arnal & Marcel Bagés

Winners of the 2016 Premi Ciutat de Barcelona (City of Barcelona Award), vocalist Maria Arnal and guitarist Marcel Bagés beautifully blend old and new sounds together. Performing to sold-out venues throughout Catalonia and beyond, they draw from field recordings, record libraries, and their personal archives to create new and unique compositions. With each concert, they reinvigorate the very notion of what folk music can be.

Presented in collaboration with the 2018 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
