Folia – Miranda do Douro

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.

Somos Firmes
Somos filhos desta
Terra Quente

Do Planalto
