Latin music weekend in Adeje

 

Lovers of Latin music are in for a real treat this Saturday with Juan Luis Guerra taking to the Golf Costa Adeje stage. The singer from the Dominican Republic, considered by many to be one of the top Latin American musicians of the day, returns to Adeje (his third time playing in South Tenerife) and will be preceded on stage by Cuban bank Orishas.
Juan Luis Guerra has sold over 30 million records, and won many Grammys and Latin Grammys. He belongs to a growing group of internationally recognised Latin artists and his popular style of merengue and Afro-Latin fusion has garnered him considerable success throughout Latin America. He does not limit himself to one style of music and incorporates diverse rhythms like merengue, bachata-fusion, balada, salsa, rock and roll, and even gospel.

Orishas, with two Latin Grammys under their musical belt, have been listed by TIME magazines in the top ten non-USA bands. While the group was born in Paris in 1998 they are, in essence, a hip hop group from Havana, Cuba. The band’s founding members are Yutuel Romera, Ruzzo Medina, Roldán González and Flaco-Pro and for this concert Yutuel, Ruzzo and Roldán will be joined on stage by two trombonists, a keyboard player, a percussionist and a DJ.
At a press conference earlier today the Adeje mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga mentioned the strong connection Guerra has to his Tenerife public adding that everyone was looking forward to an excellent event, part of the Adeje summer programme. He said it was important for visitors to Adeje to have these kind of complementary activities, “quality out-door events such as this one” to enhance their holiday experience. He added that this particular concert, of Latino music, “has a lot to do as well with our identity, our culture, our history”.

Tickets for the concert are on sale through Ticketmaster.es, Ticketea.com, canariasviaja.com, entrees.es and El Corte Ingles. The organisers have also said there will be tickets on sale on the day of the concert at the site from 5pm. According to organisers the show will feature top class sound and lighting and a number of giant screens to guarantee full views for all. Doors, by the Avenida Ayyto, will open to the public at 5pm with Orishas taking to the stage at 7pm and Juan Luis Guerra just before 9pm.

For security reasons children under 6 are not allowed to attend the concert and those between the ages of 6 and 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Concert-goers will not be allowed enter the zone with food, drink, selfie sticks, or items that might be potential weapons. The organisers also remind people that, as is the norm and for reasons of copyright, any photography or filming of the concert is strictly forbidden.

The concert is co-sponsored by the Adeje council, Cepsa and in collaboration with Golf Costa Adeje, Volkswagen, Sononpluss, Dorada sin con Limón and Pepsi Maz Zero

Oh Happy Day! Gospel school for Adeje!

The international gospel singer Latonius will direct a workshop in Adeje under the title ‘Uniting Nations’ during Easter Week

From this month Adeje is set to become a reference point for Gospel lovers and singers internationally. The councillor for culture and creative development has announced that the council will open a municipal International Gospel School, with courses, classes and performances all year round in this kind of music, which has its roots in the old Negro spirituals, many of which have been sung since the 1600s, becoming very popular in the 1800s.

During Easter Week, with the assistance of the world famous Milwaukee born singer, Tony Jermaine Earl, or the Latonius as he is known, the first workshop will be held, under the working title, “Uniendo Naciones” (uniting nations) and The Latonius Choir will sing in concert on March 12th in the Adeje Cultural Centre. The workshop will be run over three days, from March 10th to 12th, and is for people with or without choral experience (nearly all places are taken, with a huge international interest in the workshop). The workshop will look at the place of Gospel in our lives today, as well as practical workshops, vocal exercises, choral lessons and the concert on March 12th.

Following months of negotiations, the Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga and cultural councillor Adolfo Alonso were delighted to be able to confirm that this would be the first in a series of workshops with the establishment of the International Gospel School in Adeje. According to the councillor the school will initially be based in the Adeje cultural centre, for space reasons, but will ultimately move to the Adeje School of Music and Dance, “which is a model music centre and has all the infrastructure needed for this kind of course”, said the councillor. It is also envisaged that a number of international gospel artists will travel from Europe and the United States of America to host workshops and master classes.

The Latonius
Tony Jermaine Earl, Latonius, was born in Milwakee into a musical family, and lived and breathed singing from the day he was born. He sings across a range of disciplines – pop, soul, R&B, and Gospel – and has shared stages with some of the industry greats, including Sarah Vaughan, Al Jarreau, E. La Quint Weaver & the Hallelujah Singers, Darnell Davis & The Remnant, Isaac Cates & Ordained, and many more.

He now divides his professional time between Europe and the United States and has lived in Hamburg, in Germany for a number of years. He works with the Be Fly Music production and composition company and has released a number of singles.
