What's On Around Alcúdia And Pollensa - Santa Margalida Spring Fair
It doesn't get much more Mallorcan than Santa Margalida and its events, but the Spring Fair has one or two surprising elements. While the fair itself, on the Sunday, is pretty traditional (crafts, animals and what have you), there is some alternative stuff. Intriguing is the battle between the glosador and the rapper at the Es Colomer Pub on the Sunday evening. The "glosa" is, in an odd way, a bit like rap, but it is of course Mallorcan folk tradition. It will be impenetrable to most if they don't know Mallorquín, but it's a very interesting idea.
