Cap de Turc

Cap de Turc is a project about the folklore of Mallorca. An immersion in their romances and all they meant. The project is an update not only of the stories sung, of the collective mythology, but of the very processes of creation. A look at our ancestral culture to realize that we return to the origins to create again the mythology of the future, the collective unconscious. From the romances, the first recognized pieces of common creation, from our current creative commons, there is a recovery of the literary piece and its song, at the same time that we update its creation process. Literature or meta-music literature based on the experimental work of the folk musician Txema Gonzalo and sung by Pep Toni Ferrer (Oliva Rota), recovering the communal creation processes of our tradition. Some songs that come and go, crossing our blue sea. At the same time that they are tweeted by the "cartoons" of a comic, a new popular imaginary, small miniatures to our mobiles or tablets, current codecs that create a graphic novel with a language of now from an already classic author as Max is. 

The illustration of the song, the illustration that helps us create a whole like the hallelujahs of our traditions, a whole that comes from the people and created by the people. A whole that flees from the convent, from the library, to be created not by the cultured language, but by the popular language that makes it its own and transmits it with its current tools, new technological oralitats to be sung, danced and looked at in the square as a new viral process of our tradition.
