The 2022 Alícia Awards of the Catalan Academy of Music are now public.
Coinciding with the International Day of Music, the Catalan Academy of Music has celebrated Alícia Awards 2022: the annual awards given by the music sector in Catalonia last Tuesday 21, June, in an event at the Sala Oriol Martorell of L’Auditori de Barcelona in which Digital Films have had the pleasure to produce and to carry out its audiovisual production.
Music was the undisputed star of the night, with live performances of Rita Payés, Alícia Award 2021 in the Emerging Talent category, and the Fireluche Orchestra, in tribute to Pau Riba, who also received the Alícia Trajectory Award from the Academy. The award was given in recognition of his long and outstanding musical and artistic career, for his central, transversal and timeless influence on Catalan music and popular culture, and for having become one of the most relevant references in our country in the field of creation.
Maria Arnal and Marcel Bagès were the big winners of the night, receiving the Alícia Award for Performance and the Alícia Award for Record Production for their latest album “Clamor” (Fina Estampa, 2021), which they did not hesitate to share with their fellow nominees.
