About the Piece
Alanda is inspired by the rituals and traditions of our ancient Andalusia (Al-Andalus), a point of intersection and coexistence of different cultures over the centuries. The proposal seeks to connect us with our own culture, that which tells us about our roots, which allows us to live and experience the feeling of belonging.
