The Sonraíz festival was held at the beginning of June in the town of Carcabuey. Sonraíz has a strong focus on the protection and recognition of the culture of origin. Culture as a sustainable engine of rural areas and that favors the protection and dissemination of the pillars that form that culture: roots music, historical and natural heritage, gastronomy, handicrafts, plastic arts in general and the integrating and egalitarian human landscape.
The Sonraíz line-up was formed by 100% for artistic projects led by women with names like Tanxugueiras, María Arnal, Queralt Lahoz, Ruiseñora, Karmento, Ana Alcaide, Blanca Paloma, Jihan and Lourdes Pastor, among others. Its production team is equal. Parallel activities such as the workshops offered by users and instructors of the association Albaida / Subbética Natura and the exhibition of the artist Pepa Canoare examples of the clear Sonraíz’s egalitarian approach. For this reason, Sonraíz’s management does not disdain the possibility of obtaining a nomination for the Gender Equality and Diversity Award.
The road to the Fest Awards
The Sonraíz festival is an initiative promoted by the Rootsound Music agency and has counted with the collaboration of the City Council of Carcabuey, the Diputación de Córdoba, the Mancomunidad de la Subbética, the Grupo de Desarrollo Rural de la Subbética, CajaSur and the Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Protegida Priego de Córdoba. In addition, more than a dozen artisanal producers from the region joined the initiative, as well as the Asociación Albasur Plena Inclusión/ Subbética Natura.
For the team that makes Sonraíz possible, these nominations at the Fest Awards and the visibility they give to the festival and Carcabuey in the largest professional meeting of the Music Industry in the country are very motivating. However, the greatest reward is to receive the gratitude and praise that both public and artists have dedicated to the festival and the place that hosts it.
