After the great success of the previous edition of the One Heart Festival held in April 2019, we are presenting a second edition of OHF with a Single Format in the musical scene of our country, entirely dedicated to gospel.
OHF is much more than a usual festival, it is a space in which to learn and interact with great international gospel figures.
In a Format in which all participants, whether members of a choir or people participating individually, will learn and improve their interpreting and vocal skills. And will deepen in technical and stylistic aspects, as well as learn new resources. All this, in a process of sharing and coming together with others through music, gospel, because this is precisely the essence of the festival.
It is a great international gathering for enthusiasts, beyond beliefs, origin and traditions of one another.
