• San Juan in Sabinillas 2007

    San Juan 2007 in SabinillasThat was this years San Juan. After I expected some groups for a concert like Danza Invisible and Ariel Rot, they didn’t appear. So the good concerts were cancelled and there was only an orchestra. This years theme was a Medieval Castle, very first line beach, 8 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, massive swimming pool to the rear, big garden (without flowers), stables, security guard on some towers around, underfloor heating. And this nice castle was burned down last saturday at 12 o’clock midnight. What a shame. But it was a nice, big and warm fire with a fantastic firework. And the nice thing was, you could see the next bonfire on the beach of Casares.

  • Concerts in august in Manilva

    Antonio OrozcoSo that I am writing in English I am not sure if there is anybody out there who is reading my blog and who is interested in Spanish music. But I think, talking about Spain, you have to be interested in the Spanish music as well. So here are some interesting concerts which are in my hometown Sabinillas or let’s say Manilva in august, quite big concerts. The first two concerts from Antonio Orozco and from Soraya Arnelas from the 4th Operación Triunfo are in the “feria de Manilva”, so I think they are for free. The other two concerts are just big concerts in the football ground in Manilva. So august is getting hot in concerts.  (more…)

  • San Juan with Danza Invisible in Sabinillas

    San Juan 2006 in SabinillasSan Juan is held each year on the night of the 23rd of June to the 24th (Dia de San Juan). It’s the welcome to summer and its celebration takes place during the shortest night of the year. I have seen it last year in Sabinillas, but in many towns, cities or villages on the coast is the same procedure. In Sabinillas a huge tableau is constructed on the beach a few days before the event. It is a work of art and every year is a different theme. Last year you could see some big buildings from New York with figures from Superman, King Kong on the Empire State Building, The Mask and Marilyn Monroe. (more…)
