Coronavirus: Barcelona residents throw balcony party | AFP

Two days after the confinement was announced in Spain, 3 roommates – Jordi Juli, Benet V. Riquelme and Àdria Cañellas – launched a party for their neighbors, from their balcony. The success was immediate, so they created Ràdio Eixample and played 40 minutes of music every Friday and Saturday night. Through social media, they interact with their neighbors, who ask them to play the songs they like or to put on a birthday song. Passers-by and even the police stop intrigued, and sometimes dance along.
