Feeling festive in Catalonia


These photos have just been uploaded to the Facebook feed of Syrian singer and oud player Waed Bouhassoun with the tag 'Feeling festive in Cardona, Cataluna, Spain. Félicitations #amour #amitiés #bonheur'. Waed has featured frequently On An Overgrown Path and has played many times with Jordi Savall. I have no official information but the groom is obviously Jordi, so my wife and I feel it is in order to add our Félicitations.

That woman on the photo is Maria Bartels. If we are to believe La Vanguardia (10th May):

"El mestre Jordi Savall està aquesta setmana més ocupat del que ja és normal en ell. Acabat d’arribar de París, presentava ahir al CaixaForum de Barcelona el seu cinquè festival de música antiga de Poblet, una activitat que en realitat compaginava amb una cosa molt més il·lusionant: els preparatius del seu propi casament. Savall es casa dissabte a la ciutat d’ Utrecht amb qui ha estat la seva companya en els últims temps, la filòsofa holandesa Maria Bartels. "

It looks like they got the wedding's venue wrong.

My congratulations to Jordi and to Maria. I'm delighted to see a little happy news in these dark days.
