COMMENTS

This sardana is dedicated to the family's female dog. A "Faluga" is a figure in Catalan mythology. Is the equivalent of the "Nyitus" but much more perverse. Small as a grain of sand, they live in the sea, in the caves that have their name. When they want to mortify a human, they enter through the nose, ears or the eyes, and eat the "worm of the ear" and leave the victim deaf for life.
