Promoting interculturality - Àsia Choir

Barcelona Asia Choir

The Asian choir was started in 2012 in the city of Barcelona as a project of Casa Asia with the support of City Council's Directorate of Immigration and Interculturality Services.

The group began as a place for intercultural encounters between young people of different cultural backgrounds through singing and music. The project's success paved the way early on for the creation of a stable choir of about 60 young people of 23 different nationalities (60% of which are Asian) and a musical repertoire in Chinese, Japanese, Tagalog, Hindi, Catalan, Spanish and English, with constant research for new songs in Asian languages.

The choir is conducted by Carles-Josep Comalada, Voice Director at the City Music Conservatory of Barcelona.
