Music from the river-side

The PITA-SCHOOL is a multi-cultural, environmental and musical project. In the past 30 years we collected more than 60 musical instruments, waiting for you to be played in our music lounge and solar-powered recording studio…. We offer musical retreats for composers and other musicians, in a place which invites to slow down and relax, located in a green river-oasis right in the middle of the Andalusian desert.
As you can imagine, we are happy to receive musical donations in case you have any instrument, amplifier or even a Loop-station (whoop!) in your basement….!?

Listen to our collection of Jam Sessions and recordings!
