We start the second FESTIVAL done again from the base and for the people who, like all of us, have been at the bottom of the barrel for a long time. This is a proposal with a unique format in the musical panorama of our country, dedicated entirely to the musical style of gospel.
ONE HEART is more than just a typical “festival”: it is a space where you can learn and perform alongside relevant international gospel figures. It is a formula in which lovers of this musical genre, whether they are individuals or members of a choir, will learn and improve their interpretive and vocal skills, deepen the technique and learn new tricks, all this with the opportunity to be making music. Because the essence of this festival, which is the essence of gospel, is to live together and share. This is an international meeting of all those who love this music, beyond the beliefs, origin and traditions of each one.
In the edition that took place on April 2019, figures such as the North-American composer, artist and record producer Donald Lawrence participated; who offered a workshop and the attendees later participated in his concert. Also Bazil Meade, a reference of European gospel, founder and leader of the London Community Gospel Choir who traveled to Barcelona along with Anette Bowen and Rebecca Thomas who also participated in workshops and concerts alongside Messengers, Goizargi Gospel Choir, Esclat and the Sant Andreu Jazz Band.
In uncertain and quite troubled times, emotional, the vibrant and hypnotic gospel music unites hearts so that for a few days they are ONE HEART and tell the world from Barcelona that by integrating music into our lives, a better future is possible.
