Jaen summer tastes like music. Mestiza and Volante de la Puebla hosted the event with 'Consentidos, Jaen Music Experience'. This was a unique proposition in a stunning and unrivalled setting, the Caseria de Jesus, where the sign 'no tickets’ was displayed. Jaen was able to experience a new mix of sensations.
Volante de la Puebla's Esteban Garrido, Paco Mora and Paco Mora are always a big party, as is their viral video clips. This is a revision to the Andalusian symbology. It combines the popular and traditional songs of Spanish folklore, with electronic music from all times and urban rhythms. This band takes innovation, transgression, and criticism to a new level with hits like 'Se nos Roto el amor', "El Higo" or "El Alboran".
Mestiza is the reason that Spanish folk, root, and traditional music have a second life. This is thanks to a path she shares with musicians and bands like Baiuca, Rodrigo Cuevas or Tanxungueiras. Mestiza blends a Spanish sound with electronic and Arabic rhythms. Belah and Pitty Bernad are the people behind Mestiza's name.
The lizard is Jaen's most iconic animal. It is celebrated every July 2. In recent years, the Iuventa Cultural Association has organized a comprehensive program around this celebration. It involves the collaboration of the City Council and the Provincial Council. This year, the program will continue until July 10.
First, there was a flamenco guitarist concert at Condestable Palace Iranzo by Juan Moreno. Alvaro Garcia played percussion. This musical event brought together all ages of fans and was followed by guided tours, musical theater, video mapping, and traditional parade. This last activity will take place in the capital's historic center on Friday afternoon. It will run from the stream of La Magdalena up to the Plaza de San Ildefonso.
To celebrate the Day of the Lizard, the red illumination of the Santa Catalina Castle and the Town Hall will continue until Sunday, July 3.
Amaranto was brought to life by Juan Jimenez Roman and Juan Carlos Medina Romero. Sergio Garcia Morillas presented the third musical suggestion of the day at the Arab Baths within the program "Noches de Palacio".
Bolero's concert was extremely special as it was part of the tour to present his fifth album, 'Veinte. The album was recorded in strict direct in the courtyard of the Arab Baths Cultural Center shortly before the pandemic.
They delighted their fans in the Jaen emblem's outdoor patio to perform the songs of "always with new bets" on this occasion. The Amaranto quartet has a traditional structure that reflects the best of the original quartets of this genre, which have been a staple in Puerto Rico for decades. It performs a tour of the most memorable bolero themes composed by some of the greatest bolero composers. It has also included beautiful original and personal boleros. This group, which is known as the flower of love, mixes, in their concerts, with other more hot and moving rhythms such as the guaracha and the Cuban boy, the bosanova among others.
Three musical events closed the rhythmic month June in Jaen's iconic locations. They will continue through July and August.
