The Association 'Festival Internacional de Musica de Cantonigros', commenced its activities in 1983, organising the first Festival and has continued each year since without interruption.
The Generalitat de Catalunya gave the 'CREU DE SANT JORDI' for its contribution to promote cultural interchanges with countries all over the world, and for the international projection of Catalonia and his music. We have been also awarded with the “PREMI NACIONAL DE CATALUNYA”, for our 20 years of continuous activity aimed towards the development of culture.
The Jaume I foundation award the 'PREMI D’HONOR JAUME I' recognizing the constant dedication and loyalty service to the culture of the catalan countries.
From the beginning, the Festival has been sponsered by the most important Public Institutions and Private Entities alike and has a large number of collaborators, managers, organisations and associations assisting; not forgetting the many individuals who also contribute towards the smooth running of the festival in many ways.
Over the years, experts on the culture of our country and foreign countries, have served on the jury giving the Festival a guarantee of experience and quality that is recognised worlwide.
During this 23 years, 83 countries, 398 cities and 645 choirs and dance groups have been participed in our Festival. The approximate total number of espectators it’s, in this moment, 500.000.
