CANCELLED with tragically short notice in March, due to Spain’s Covid-19 lockdown, the Rojales Music Without Borders Festival belatedly launches this weekend on October 23.
Organisers promise that the 13th festival of its kind will have “sanitary measures in the extreme.”
The Councillor for Culture, Inmaculada Chazarra (pictured right), points out that it is an event to enjoy, be surprised and discover various types of music.
Lasting until Friday November, the series of concerts is now considered one of the area’s ‘reference’ festivals, due to the variety of music styles on show and the quality of the various productions.
The opening night has the Moisés P. Sánchez Proyect quintet performing.
Their “Unbalanced” album was nominated for The Latin Grammy 2019 in the Best Instrumental Album category.
Friday October 30 sees Alicante’s own High Five Jazz Quintet in action.
Folk trio La Musgaña will present their new album,”Raitán”, on Friday, November 6.
The Nakhla Orchestra, made up of Spanish and Morroccan musicians, will close the festival on Friday November 20.
Their style promotes musical culture from Arab, Andalusian and Mediterranean origins.
Social distancing and sanitary regulations will be enforced throughout each element of the festival.
