21 Mar ‘Amor de la Marenda’, in homage to Teresa Rebull
ADEP’s record collection grows with a new volume in homage to Teresa Rebull (1919-2015): Amor de la Marenda (ADEP008). The album comes from the recording of the live concert held to commemorate the centenary of the birth of the Catalan singer-songwriter and artist. The concert, which took place at the Espai Ter in Torroella de Montgrí on December 20, represented the beginning of the MUSIC AND EXILE program promoted by the Department of Culture.
The album contains all original songs by Teresa Rebull, with exception of three, which have been composed by Joan Díaz, who also wrote all of the arrangements of this album. Participating musicians include Laura Simó, Anna Roig and Raquel Lúa, vocals; Perico Sambeat, saxophones and flute; Álvaro Ocón, trumpet; Sandrine Robilliard, cello; Dani Pérez, guitar; Joan Díaz, piano and melodic; David Mengual, double bass; and David Domínguez and Marc Vila, percussion.
The booklet of the album includes an original text by the singer-songwriter and personal friend of Rebull, Lluís Llach, as well as photographs and paintings of the Catalan artist provided by friends and family of the singer and activist.
This album is a co-production of ADEP, the City Council of Torroella de Montgrí and the Barnasants song festival (in its 25th edition), and its presentation, scheduled at L’Auditori de Barcelona within the same festival on March 21, 2020, which has been postponed until next fall due to Covid-19.
