This Saturday enjoy folk music and dance in the Plaza San Sebastian in La Caleta

As part of the Adeje ‘Creativa’ two-month long programme of cultural events in the borough, the Imoque folk group are hosting a festival of music and dance in the San Sebastían plaza in La Caleta, harking back to the 1920s. Entry is free.

Adeje councillor for creative development, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera says, “With this Creativa programme we have brought together a host of cultural, musical, educational and sporting events taking place throughout May and June”. He continued, “The council is always delighted to support particular initiatives which reflect who we were and are, symbols of our identity. The work and performances of so many different groups, bands, orchestras, and associations made up of residents of the borough have helped us revive our culture, fundamental for the health of our society”.

This year the III Imoque Festival is divided into two parts, the first, courtesy of the Imoque group, reflecting life just after the end of the First World War and the changes in society with the introduction of the car, the cinema, photography and the growing influence of the press. The second part of the evening will be with the Grupo Gaida from Lanzarote with folklore from today showing the influences of recent decades on Canarian music.

The Imoque Festival is made possible by the help and support of the Adeje Council, the Los Alzados de San Juan de la Rambla family, Grupo Gaida from Lanzarote, the San Juan de la Rambla Council, the Canarian Government, the Tenerife Cabildo and the people of Adeje.
