Second week of September: Catalan rumba rhythm and culture at everyone’s reach.

This second week of September has been very intense for us. We have been to two different events just a few days apart to keep informing about our initiative and to raise funds to help Àlex.

On Wednesday September 10th we went to the festival of Catalan rumba from Catalonia “RUMBKP Festival” that took place in Capellades (Barcelona). We want to thank the Rumbkp organization for letting us place our stand since the festival started at 11:30.p.m until it ended. The wonderful weather we had during the night let us enjoy the groups taking part in the festival: Terratombats, Bongo Botrako and Oques Grasses.

Thanks very much to Terratombats, Catalan rumba in its pure essence. We had a great time listening and looking to them live. They shared some minutes with us and took photos with people at our stand. They also helped us explain to the audience our purpose speaking about Àlex from the stage and wearing a T-Shirt from our association. Moving around to help Àlex, we are able to enjoy special moments. This was one of them.

We followed on our activities Friday and Saturday September 12th and 13th, at “Mercat d’Artesania i Paradistes” from 11 in the morning until 1 a.m. This is a complementary activity of the “Fira Tàrrega – Teatre al Carrer” which took place in Tàrrega (Lleida) during two sunny and hot days. Thousands of people come to visit this fair, taking part in this cultural festivity. Thanks to the collaboration of “Fira Tàrrega” we could set our stand.

As always, we continue moving forward with a lot of dedication, effort and willingness. Very hopeful, enjoying this time and feeling satisfied with all the positive parts this project has.These months of effort have been worthy for all we have been able to raise, the diffusion and all the new friends we have made.

Thank you very much to everyone who is making this possible!
