“Silvia Nogales (Guitar) and JOMA (Plastic Artist) present the show “DONES”: A concert to give visibility to the work of great composers and the role of women in the world!!!”


The project aims to make a journey through the situation of different women from 5 countries, through the musical gaze of renowned composers from different parts of the world. We live in a century where great steps have been taken towards the visibility of women at different levels. The feminist movement of the XXI century supported by others such as the #metoo started in the US, has denounced abuses suffered by women in the world of culture. These protests are turning points in recent history for the achievement of equality between men and women. With this project we propose to interpret a series of contrasting musical works that will become, in real time, pictorial and visual stories by the renowned Catalan artist JOMA and the also renowned guitarist, based in Barcelona, ​​Silvia Nogales Barrios. The artist Josep Maria Rius Origosa (JOMA) and the guitarist Silvia Nogales formed a duo in 2020 with the guitarist’s show called Altamira Ancestral y Mágica. The Nogales project was awarded by the Ministry of Culture in 2018 and selected from more than 30 proposals in the Gemona International Concert to be held in the Prada Caves (Italy). On this occasion, Silvia Nogales created a concert under the Mediterranean Guitar Festival production to make visible the work of great female composers and the role of women in the world. Both create a pictorial concert with live drawings, which will emerge from the constant dialogue with the music braiding a story. Live drawings are transformed before the public, creating animations in real time ‘. The music will be made up of works by major composers, such as four-time Grammy winner Claudia Montero, Grammy nominee Clarice Assad, Tarragona pianist Maria Parra, among others. Some of the works will be premieres and will be specially created for the occasion as is the case of the piece by the composer María Parra
