The group was born in
1994 with the aim of dignifying and modernizing Majorcan
Traditional Music through a present-day approach to the lyrics
and music that define us a people.
We are concerned about
the defence of our identity, our country, our language and
culture, taking into account that we are part of the
Mediterranean and that the wealth of our cultural heritage
must not disappear.
Halfway between tradition
and original lyrics we have recorder five CDs: “Projecte Roig”
(1995), “De poetes I altres codolades” (1997), “Anem de
Gresca” (1998), “Fent Camí” (2001) and “amb Coherència (2004).
In 1996, the group was
awarded the Cerverí Prize for the song “Mai l’amor és
impossible” a song recorded on the “Projecte Roig” CD, lyrics
and music by Toni Roig, said prize being awarded by the
Prudenci Bertrana Foundation based in the town of Girona.
We vindicated the
MEDITERRANEO as own musical space from the South shore to the
North shore without forgetting the east.
By tradition we make use
of the instruments that of ancestral form have survived the
passage of time, with the intention, among others, make arrive
at the future generations all the values that we do not want
that they are lost.
Like always, we followed
it jeopardize in the defense of our Country, our language and
of a form to live and to feel that they are our signs of
lose them we will disappear like town. We want to leave a door
open to the creativity, to the new musical technologies, the
new musics by ethnic root, since the culture is always an
alive matter and we fought so that it does not become a museum
culture makes the people free.
