The ou com balla is one of the popular manifestations about which more has been written and less studied. While it is true that finding out the origins of our folklore is complex, it is also true that the mistakes of the past have been repeated without any rigorous work being done on the subject.
In this publication, the work of the historian and folklorist Nil Rider, an attempt is made to shell out the documentary information on this genuine element of the Catalan Corpus – especially in Barcelona – which has spread throughout the country since the middle of the 20th century and that has also arrived in Badalona.
What do we know about the ou com balla? Fortunately, with this book, more and more.
