Icod shows its solidarity support
Icod de los Vinos showed its solidarity by supporting a fundraising venture in aid of the palliative care unit of the Ofra hospital.
More than 1,000 people turned out for the “Luz de timple” festival which brought in a magnificent 5,000 euros for the worthy cause.
The festival was held over a period of three days and was dedicated to the memory of Miguel Ángel Negrín who had been a stalwart of the Canary Timple Assocation which continues the use of this traditional musical instrument.
Organised by the Cultural Association Capirotes Parranderos, it culminated with applause for the variety of concerts, exhibitions, audi-tions and talks that were held by the hand of masters of the timple as Benito Cabrera and Domingo “el Colorao”.
