Majorca - I like it. A virtual tour to the island’s villages
Majorca is more than just another Spanish Island. It is not even just catalane. In Majorca people speak “Mallorquí” and traditions and folklore are deeply rooted in daily life. And even in modern life, as most of the young people as well join enthusiastically the cultural feasts and speak preferably the tongue of their island. Since 50 years the association “l’Obra Cultural Balear” dedicates itself to keep and preserve Majorcan life and language.
Themed “Mallorca, m’agrada!” (Majorca, I like it!), in 2011 and 2012 a series of playback-accompanied videos has been created, in which various municipalities of the island as for example Andratx, Calvià, Sóller, Binissalem, Valldemossa, further Palma and many others present and celebrate themselves. Music-bands, sports-clubs, sewing labs, dance groups or boy-and girl-scouts, the whole village life is reflected in the cheerful filmlet, performed by the inhabitants of the township.
The creators not focused too much on professionalism and perfection while realising the shooting, but rather featured the local spirit, authenticity and identification with life on the isle of sun: Majorca. For residents, tourists and Majorca-fans, too, a click on one of the videos is worthwhile to do, thus the spectator is taken on a pleasant virtual tour through the village and gets introduced to some facets beyond the usual tourist sight on the island.
