AN eclectic exhibition of more than 100 musical instruments from 40 countries is heading to Velez-Malaga.

Culture councillor Cynthia García, and professor of music Gabriel Marín, opened the exhibition in order to get students from around the Axarquia involved in music.

Running until May 26, the exhibition will also feature live concerts.

Garcia said: “It is a very interesting opportunity to interact with music and this diversity of instruments, which otherwise neither a child nor an adult can know.”

The exhibition will use QR codes which can be scanned using mobile devices to distribute information on each of the instruments on display.
