animal expressions

things are a bit quieter here in the summer months, but the Galician sessions are continuing on the last Wednesday of each month, so save the date of August 29 – official announcement to follow in a week or so.

Meanwhile, here are some goodies that have channeled through the facebook group in one form or another, liberated for the benefit of the lucky few who don’t have facebook:

An article about animal expressions in Galician – apparently a scientific study found 1300 of them, and there are of course lots of animal references in the songs we sing as well.

From the Festival Interceltique de Lorient the official confirmation that at next year’s event, taking place from August 2 to 11, 2019, Galicia will be the featured Celtic nation.  So we should really get our act together and send a delegation …

Plus, advance warning that I have added four pairs of cunchas to the big bag of percussions that I bring to the sessions. Which look like this:


more info about their use as percussions is here.

PS: In news from other minoritised Romance languages, there is a rare chance to watch a Catalan movie at the Ultimate Picture Palace from 25.8.
