The last Folia, in Miranda do Douro, took place Saturday, 10th September.
It was a moment of enormous emotion, to finish this great undertaking with that explosion of joy and love that was lived there.
Thanks to Município de Macedo de Cavaleiros, Câmara Municipal de Vinhais and Município de Miranda do Douro for the invitation, thank you Galandum Galundaina for the openess and for embarking on this adventure, thank you to our wonderful team, Patrícia Costa, Helena Oliveira, Susana Abreu, Paulo Meirinhos, Alberto Fernandes, who designed proposals with us, guided workshops, followed this entire journey. And the most special thanks to all the participants, from the three municipalities, who gave us their incredible contributions, sometimes with great personal effort, always with enormous dedication, trust, responsibility and a sense of mission, of commitment. There is a Feeling of Us that was ingrained in those rehearsals, in those afternoons of work, in those clothes, in those gestures, in those sounds. And that never comes out.
Thank you Banda Filarmónica 25 de Março – Lamas, Universidade Sénior de Macedo de Cavaleiros, Lérias Associação Cultural, Mirandanças Associação, Escola Municipal de Música de Vinhais and Associação Cultural, Recreativa e Desportiva de Agrochão.

The premiere of our Folia, with the Galandum Galundaina and communities of Macedo de Cavaleiros, Miranda do Douro and Vinhais, took place last Saturday, August 20, at Praia da Fraga da Pegada, Azibo. It was a very beautiful night, full of music, dance and joy. Foliage, there it is!
On the 27th we will be in Vinhais, come on!

The final show will be presented on the 17th of July.

Many people have come to film and record our rehearsals at Cine-Teatro Miramar, in Rabo de Peixe, S. Miguel Island, Azores and there have been many questions and many answers. We are very anxious!
Ondamarela is in the region of the 14 municipalities that make up the CIM – Viseu Dão Lafões creating an entirely new and original community performance, attended by people from all over the region. Directed by Tim Steiner, the work is currently based on exploration sessions with various communities, in order to collaboratively create a set of musical materials identifying the region and the participants. The concert will take place in Viseu, on the 17th of July, and was presented to the press last week. In the coming weeks there will also be an open call for open participation in this project, called Sete e Sete.
