About Sitarsencat seminars:


All our seminars are hold in an excellent setting, a traditional masia (traditional farm house) from the 18th century, superbly located in Barcelona’s surrounds (100km from Barcelona) in a quiet environment in the middle of the nature.




We guarantee all our seminars are given by professional musicans that will be able to adapt their lessons to all levels and instruments, so it will not be a problem for a melodic instrument player to attend a workshop by a teacher specialized in another one; for example, a sarod player could attend a sitar workshop (respecting always melody and percussion instruments are not to be mixed).


Sitarsencat can provide you professional instruments to use at the workshop. Contact us for more details.


A professional tabla player will join all our seminars.


All our seminars are full board packages.


We can offer transfer to / from the venue were the seminar is hold. Contact us for more details.
