Spain Tastic! Tours had the pleasure of enjoying the Muixerangues of Algemesi very closely.
We will know a little more about what they are!
The Muixerangues are a set of human towers, originating in the Comunidad Valenciana, which involved men, women and children. It differs mainly from the castellers of Catalonia for its goal: the muixeranga has a religious character, as it participates and is represented in processions in honor of the Mare de Deu de la Salut, the grand local party at Algemesi.
The music and melody that accompanies these human towers were originated in Comunidad Valenciana, composed by an anonimous author, and it is represented by the dulzaina and tabal.
The great tradition of this celebration, with hints of Roman culture, Christian, Moorish and Jewish, in addition to the high involvement of the citizens of the town, makes Algemesi celebrations a truly unique. We love them!
