We won’t go into it They robbed Tanxugueiras of victory in front of everyonebut we won’t go into it. The point is that this seemed like the old days, when we discussed things like that on the networks, and not about pandemics or third world wars. Better that flavor to other times, the truth.

The point is that, with the interest in the different protagonists of the story, a curious detail came to light. One of them gave the voice to a legendary animated film.

Indeed, Paula Ribó, the Catalan actress and singer who performs under the artistic name of Rigoberta Bandini, was the voice of the protagonist of Spirited Away.

I’m not saying that this Japanese animated film is the best film from the legendary Studio Ghibli, but it is the one I always recommend to anyone who wants to start with them. A wonder that premiered in Spain in October 2002.

ribó gave voice in Spanish and Catalan to the girl Chihiro. Taking into account the dates of the film and the current age of Rigoberta Bandini, this she had about 12 years old no problem…
