Cocktail of rock with new “Eat to the beat” festival 

PAGE 30 COCKTAIL 2

In the month of January, rock will take over the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in Gran Canaria with the arrival of the “Eat to the beat” festival in the musical panorama of the Gran Canaria capital.

The programme is composed of three concerts with top-level artists such as guitarist Josele Santiago, who will open the cycle on January 13th, with the presentation of his work Transilvania; the brothers Appice, Carmine and Vinnie, who will finish their European tour with the concert on January 20th; and Morgane Ji, who will perform for the first time in Spain, on January 27th.

The City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, through its Department of Culture and the Auditorium and Theatre Foundation present this innovative initiative, produced by Salan Producciones, which brings a musical culture closer to the main venues, which usually takes place on a circuit more underground.

Referring to the name of the festival, attendees can combine music with gastronomy since the tickets, which have a single price of 15 euros per concert, include two montaditos that can be enjoyed before the concert. For this, Sala Jerónimo Saavedra will open its doors one hour before appointments, which will take place at 10.30pm. This space will become the Corner of Rock, generating a unique atmosphere in the city to enjoy rock and gastronomy.

Josele Santiago, singer, guitarist and main composer of Los Enemigos, returns to his solo work with Transilvania, an amazing record and considered by critics as one of the albums of the year. This will be the first time that Josele Santiago plays in the Canary Islands accompanied by his complete band, formed by five musicians.

Legendary drummers Carmine and Vinnie Appice will finish their European tour at the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium. The brothers will present their debut, Sinister, and they will play classic songs from the bands they have participated in such as Dio, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osburne, Cactus and Rod Stewart. This concert will be a must for lovers of hard rock and parallel sounds.

After two albums that confirm a unique musical style, Morgane Ji presents her new album entitled Woman Soldier, in which she mixes pop, rock and electronic sounds, with world music tints. The unique voice of the ‘Criolla Queen’, sensual and wild, her lyrical prose, her animal dances and her marked shamanic shouts show her an unusual talent.

Tickets for these concerts can be purchased at the box offices of the Teatro Pérez Galdós, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm; as well as in the web pages www.auditorioteatrolaspalmasgc.es and www.auditorio-alfredokraus.com.
