MAASTRICHT. The student music group Tuna de Maastricht won no less than four trophies at the Tuna competition in Jerez, Spain, last weekend.

Tuna is an ancient Spanish and Portuguese tradition in which students travel around the country making music to earn money for their studies. Maastricht has both a men's and a women's group. This time, it was the men who traveled to Spain. There they won first prize in the categories ‘dance with a tambourine’, ‘serenade’ and ‘group that best expresses the tradition of the Tuna’. In the overall category ‘best Tuna’, the Maastricht students came in second.
