Festival August 2020

El Sueño Existe 2020 : August 7th and 8th, Machynlleth Wales, Y Plas – SY20 8ER    Mini festival (2 days)

Country theme for our next festival is El Salvador – Land of music, poetry, dance – and RESISTANCE!

Join us in Machynlleth as we commemorate Archbishop Monsignor Romero, 40 years on from his assassination at the start of the civil war (1980) – and now officially a Saint, “San Romero de las Americas”. And we will be celebrating the achievements of young El Salvadoreans today.

Music, workshops, discussions, poetry, folk dance, films, video link ups featuring the brilliant “Music for Hope / Musica para la Esperanza” project inspiring rural youngsters to learn traditional musical styles & song writing for their own expression, and as a gateway to community organising and leadership.

A vibrant showcase of El Salvadorean culture, and a focus on modern realities both there and closer to home. 2 days of inspiration – in El Salvador, where Victor Jara’s dream of a world of social justice, fulfillment and artistic expression is very much alive!

More details, tickets and accommodation information coming soon.
