Three months after the thrilling 2022 Open Contest in the Czech Republic, today begins the twentieth edition of the Totallympics International Song Contest, which will be the first time that Spain will act as host country thanks to the victory in 2022 of Tanxugueiras. Several Spanish cities have shown interest in hosting such an important event, but after a long period of deliberation, the organizing team has opted for... ¡Sevilla! The capital of Andalucía is the fourth largest city in the country with 700,000 citizens and almost 2 million living in the metropolitan area. Since Roman times it has played a fundamental role in the history of Spain, having the largest historic center in the country. This is evident when walking through its streets, where you can see the legacy left by the Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Christians... In sports Sevilla hosted the World Athletics Championships in 1999, the Rhythmic Gymnastics Worlds in 1998 and the Rowing Worlds in 2002. It was also one of the venues for World Cup games in both football (1982) and basketball (2014). Over the next few weeks, we will travel to different places of the country to learn about traditional music and what better way than to start with the host city and the agrupaciones musicales, instrumental musical groups whose origin is linked to Easter, the most popular celebration of Sevilla alongside the Feria de Abril! Vida (Life) “Sevilla tiene un color especial!” por supuesto Portugal is in 🇵🇹 Spain is probably the nation I’ve visited the most during my life (have family there and spent all my summers there during my childhood and teenage years) so I can’t wait to “visit” it yet another time as for the contest it’s always a bit difficult for me the anual edition (due to not be living in Portugal for 6 years now) but I’ll find something out I’m sure Cobi 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
