They are a group of highly experienced musicians from the Granada music scene (most of whom went through the legendary Banda del uncle Paco at the end the seventies), and they have returned to the stage proving that Miguel Rios was right. Javier and Alfonso Valenzuela, Nicolas Medina, and Miguel Madero, found the British Steve Silvestre to be the perfect voice to add lyrics (and good English, obviously) to their passion for country.

Jazz Lago. Jazz Lago.
Every summer, the Atarfe Jazz Festival (Jazz on the Lake) extends the festival season in our province. It has been this way for twenty years. It was given away in 2012, but it was changed to a symbolic price. In the last two years, it had to stop its realization. But it will be back this year on the first weekend in July (20 days, 1 and 2 p.m., 10 p.m.). It serves as a preamble for the legendary Jazz on the Coast, which is always a fortnight after its commendable journey over two decades.
The Atarfe Big Band, augmented by Perico Sambeat, will feature Jean Toussaint from Virgin Islands. Jean Toussaint is a brilliant tenor. Gwen Perry, an American singer, will perform a double act with American Michel Lee Wolfe and Maraia Zydeco Band in the second concert. This is one of few Louisiana formations that produce such vibrant early music. It will take place in the Meadow of the Ermita de los 3 Juanes.

Although it was established in 1980, the Iznalloz festival for rock music is a trademark. It has been around intermittently ever since. In recent years, the 'Kolectivo Rockero de Iznalloz" has taken over the festival's contest mode. There are several bands that will be playing as well as a headliner. The finalist this year is Lude (Metal-rap), from Murcia, Metalcore Korribanal, from Granada and Loncha Velasco, from Malaga. Progressive Metal and Andalusian Rock will be competing in a final which, as you can see, will exhaust the Marshalls.
They will be joined by Dona Carmencita Calavera's band at the end. It will take place on Saturday, July 2, at 9:00 p.m.

The Asturian singer, Victor Manuel, performs in the tranquil meadow at the Tres Juanes hermitage, four days after his 75th birthday. Victor Manuel took to the road to celebrate such a special birthday. He recalled in the presentation for the 'Una Vida entre songs tour that music "heals all things: it is the best thing to write a song and have someone listen to it... We will meet on the road. Atarfe will be the next stop on the tour. It starts at 10 o'clock on Sunday, 3 March. There are also two important dates: the Asturias symphonic concert and the close of the campaign at the Madrid Sports Palace on December 21.
If you don't know who Victor Manuel is, it is one of the most prominent singer-songwriters to have been born in this country. He has almost fifty albums (not counting anthologies), and many collaborations, as well as the production of three movies.
