Tradiball d'Israel - English

The 7th and 8th June 2014 Vincent Parodi will be in Manresa, offering us a new workshop of Israeli Dances.


After the big success that Vincent’s workshop had last year, we have decided to organise something a little bit bigger, turning that weekend into a small folk festival, where, apart from the dance workshop, there will be three folk music concerts, by renowned groups from Catalonia and abroad.




Vincent Parodi has been teaching dances from Israel for more than 25 years all around Europe.

If you are interested in reading some more information about him, you can visit his website at:


The Israeli dances workshop in Manresa will be given on Saturday 7th June morning and afternoon, and Sunday 8th June in the morning.




The groups which will be playing at the festival will be:


Saturday 7th June, in the evening, in first place:


KHAVERIM, folk music group from France, with a wide repertoire of more than 100 pieces from Israel.

This group, composed of 5 musicians with a long musical career, has participated in many festivals, such as Gennetines, Vialfrè, Saint Gervais, etc. With them, we will enjoy dancing those pieces that we already know, and also some new ones that will be taught by Vincent Parodi.


And after that:


DUET U, a Catalan duet formed by Marc del Pino (symmetrical accordion) and Coloma Bertran (violin). This duet which was born at the dancing squares, will offer us a wide repertoire of pieces to make us dance all night long, with modern harmonies from France, the Basque Country, Catalonia and the East-Europe. With them, we will enjoy some couple dances and also group dances, at a concert full of rhythm leaded by two masters of modern Folk music. 


Sunday 8th June, at the afternoon:



Amanida Folk, this time, in a reduced format of 3 musicians, is a Catalan Folk music group with more than 10 years of experience on the stage.

They have played at several big festivals such as Andanças, Saint Gervais, Danzas Sin Fronteras, Fira Mediterrània, etc., performing Mediterranean Folk music.

Amanida will offer us a concert which will mix some Israeli dances, and also other pieces that we can listen to in their usual repertoire, and that we all yearn to dance again.




The full program of Tradiball d’Israel will be uploaded soon! But, for the moment, we will give you some information for you to have an idea about it.
