LA LUNA SESSIONS aims to bring music to the public in a live show format. It is an artistic and musical space, created to showcase performance by differents artists, in various styles and many locations
For Pilar Almalé, making music is like sowing seeds in a field: "For many months you have to work the land and take care of the plants and trees until they finally bear fruit, and you can start feeding on them." The artist and composer from Zaragoza combines folk elements with the baroque sound of the viola da gamba, reinterpreting historical sound languages in order to find new ones, seeking connections between popular and traditional music from different cultures and translating the tangible and concrete into sound, and vice versa. During this journey, we talked about all this and her projects Almalé, Ceci n'est pas Baroque and Caranzalem
