About us

Orquestrina Trama starts on 2013 between the Catalan regions of La Cerdanya and L'Alt Urgell, in the Pyrenees mountains. The members of the band are a group of young musicians strongly bound to the traditional Pyrenean music and culture, since we have got the privilege of living, knowing, learning and growing in this territory.
Our thrill is to revive the tunes and songs that, hidden behind our mountains, define best a way of life and understanding the surrounding world pretty particular. Inspired by dance music that used to be played many years ago in the streets and squares of Pyrenean villages, we address to the audience through our own style, which spreads our energy around and involves everyone in the party.

Repertoire

The source from which our music flows is the Pyrenees. Most of the pieces that we play are traditional, but have been filtered by our energetic style. Taking in account that our cultural identity is in the first place as Pyreneans, our repertoire contains pieces from all over the Pyrenees - Catalonia, Andorra, Basque Country, Occitania and Aragon. At the same time, though, we have some original compositions.

Our show

Concert-dance format show. In addition to enjoy listening to us, we encourage the audience to take part on the party by dancing to our music, either collectively or in couples. Pasdobles, mazurkas, schottisches, circassian circles, rondèus, chapelloises… are some of the genres you will be to learn and dance with us.
If needed, we can have with us a dance teacher who will dynamize the show from down the stage.
And, if required, we can take the street and fill it with music in a parade, with some stops to dance and interact with our audience.

A kid in Travesseres surrounded by cameras

Recording of the first video clip of the Orquestrina Trama

This weekend there was a special meeting between a boy from Travesseres (Baridà - Cerdanya) and a mysterious landlady. We have no more details, the only thing we can say is that after all day chasing each other through the streets, at night, in the beautiful town square, they were able to dance La Masobera, played by the Orquestrina Trama. With the first light of day, the first scenes were recorded in a spring landscape characteristic of the group's place of origin. The lilo, like every year at this time of year, has been the protagonist and at night a party has been organized so that the boy and the landlady could dance... and, as you know, as the song says:"it won't be until midnight that we know where the seeds will have bloomed!". All day and all night the streets and the town square have been filled with people. Many friends of the Orchestra have come to Travesseres. The group is very grateful and thanks them wholeheartedly for their support and warmth.

He who sings frightens away his evils

The Orquestrina Trama participates in Arturo Gaya's singing course at the Folk School of the Pyrenees

At the Folk School of Arsèguel, Arturo Gaya - the blind man of the Ferreries group - has given a singing course in which the members of the Orquestrina Trama have participated. They have been intense days where a group of musical genres from the south have worked together. The Orquestrina Trama has shared the music and singing with other participants enrolled in the course on an individual basis. It has been a very interesting and enriching experience where music and reflection on traditional singing have been the protagonists.

Music and dance in the neighbouring country

First collaboration of the Orquestrina Trama with the Esbart Dansaire of Andorra la Vella

This Thursday 25th of May the Orquestrina Trama and the Esbart Dansaire de Andorra la Vella have made their first collaboration. The members of the esbart commented:"There is no better thing for a dancer than dancing to live music". For the members of the Orchestra there is no greater pleasure than watching people dance to their music. This is how musicians and dancers, dressed in period costumes, have made their first collaboration in a small square in the old town of Andorra la Vella. Two groups of very similar ages and from two neighbouring countries of the Pyrenees, pure dynamite because the square is revolutionized by partying and fun. When's the next one?

From the mountain to the sea

The Orquestrina Trama in Sa Pobla for the festivities of Sant Antoni

On the evening of the 13th, the members of the Orquestrina Trama boarded a ferry to Sa Pobla to play in the festivities of Sant Antoni accompanied by castellers, devils and colles from the Vila de Gracia as part of the exchange organised this year between Sa Pobla and Gracia. On the evening of the 14th, after a performance by the castellers, the Orquestrina opened the festival and the first Pyrenean melodies began to play in the middle of the Mediterranean. It has been a magical night where sea and mountain have been reunited in the circumstance of a precipitous Sant Antoni.

Return to Esplugues

Orquestrina Trama enters the studio to begin recording the second CDD

These days the members of the Orquestrina will be passing through the studio of Pau Vinyoles to record their second CD. The Tartera Art Workshop will be in charge of giving form and image to the work done on the cover and booklet of the CD. Looks like we can hear it this summer and see it through!

Road and blanket

First tour of Italy

The Orquestrina Trama could not wait until the summer to return to Italy, so at the end of May they picked up the instruments for their first tour. On May 27th at sunset they left the Pyrenees for Marseille, where they slept, and the next day they had their first performance in Castelfidardo. There they have met again with the friend and musician Roberto Lucanero who has hosted them with a very special welcome. The next performance in Rimini was very pleasant and full of surprises. The short tour ended in Conegliano - a town where the members of the group met again with the friends they met last summer at the Festinval - although the night was cold, in the Plaza de Conegliano there was an evening full of love and human warmth.
