“Song for Barcelona”

The Park Güell (Catalan: Parc Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain)

Walking through the alleys in park almost every dozen or some hundreds meters you can meet artists of all kinds of art: painters, caricaturists, mimes, or finally – those that catch my attention and steal my soul and time – viruosos of musical instruments. Some of them perform their show on instruments well known e.g. guitar or violin, but there are also grandmasters of instruments that are not very common, and the sounds coming out of them do not let you pass beside them without interests. The music they present does not have language, color, religion or nationality – it is created by street virtuosos for all. There are no divisions in “we” and “they”, “better” and “worse”, “rich” and “poor.” It is created by young and old passionates, playing their instruments.


Barcelona will forever be associated with the music of Park Güell, delicious Sangria which is drinking in the evening at the beach and cheerful, smiling people and none of terrorists is able to change it.
