Evening of rap and traditional song at Casal de Joves

Foto cartel tarda rap glosadorsThis Friday, one of Formentera's most entrenched musical traditions will go toe to toe with hip-hop at the inaugural edition of an evening that pairing local glosadors with rappers.

Put together between the Marià Villangómez library, the Casal de Joves and the Formentera chapter of Obra Cultural Balear, the event was concocted as a way to bridge generational divides by using the power of the word. Though outwardly dissimilar, the two forms of art have a great deal in common.

Organisers say they hope the intergenerational event highlights possible parallels between rap, a staple of younger generations, and a form known as glosa, which has been passed down and kept alive over the aeons.

Scheduled to take part are glosadors Pep of ca n'Andreu, Vicent Jeroni, Francisca Torres of can Pep Simon and rappers Kelevra, El Puerta, Elian C. and, on guitar, Mus.

The event will take place Friday, March 23 at 6.30pm in the Casal de Joves.
