The church of Santa María de Gracia de la Granadella has hosted the opening of the 9th edition of the Garrigues Guitar Festival, Memorial Emili Pujol. An edition that, as it cannot be otherwise, is marked by the Covidien-19 pandemic. Attendees have had to wash their hands with hydroalcoholic gel when entering the concert and have had to sit down while maintaining safety distances, as required by regulations.

Tente en el Aire’s performance was the first of a total of nine concerts that make up this ninth edition, which has a certain local flavor.

The festival, with the classical guitar as the main instrument, wants to pay tribute to the musician and guitarist born in La Granadella, Emili Pujol. And at the same time claim the cultural, gastronomic and landscape heritage of the Garrigues.
