The project

“If you want to understand a people’s culture, you have to understand its music.” This old adage from Confucius is what drives our project. Born of a desire to blend the terms “tourism” and “music”, Hit the Road now offers you the chance to (re)discover a city through its music. Instead of simply going to see a band, you can visit authentic places and neighbourhoods steeped in history, meet artists and music professionals, take part in workshops and interact with the people who devote their daily lives to creating the most diverse musical projects. Whether for a half-day or longer, you can follow in the footsteps of legendary composers, get mixed up in a hip-hop battle and indulge in a cocktail while listening to the rhythms of a jazz trio. Thanks to our tailor-made offers that adapt to current events in the music world and the desires of each individual, Hit the Road will take you far, far off the beaten track to explore new, musical lands…

After spending three years in the south of Italy, she joined the original journalism team at the magazine Mondomix before working as head of cultural projects for ethnoArt. Buoyed by her experience in Italy, she has remained fond of the warm climate and Mediterranean sounds. Her work in Paris has showed her that cultures often meet and blend in the same area, regardless of their differences, and that music is the perfect medium for recounting a place’s history. These years of melodies and encounters have enabled Nadia to forge a vast professional network of leading players in the music world, including musicians, press agents, journalists, directors, designers and festival programmers, who have all enhanced the Hit the Road concept.[/vc_why_container][vc_why_container imageposition= »left » bgcolor= »#ffffff » agen_img= »1727″ leftheading= »PITAHAYA » sectionid= »qui_sommes_nous-pita » css= ».vc_custom_1478150437838{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-right: 25px !important;padding-bottom: 25px !important;padding-left: 25px !important;} »]

Based in Latin America and Europe, Manuel, Perrine and Alejo make up the multidisciplinary team at Pitahaya Comunicación.

And it’s safe to say their adventures are far from over…
