Los Sabandeños begin 2016 in style
More than 800 people filled the plaza del Santísimo Cristo de la Salud in Arona for the first performance of 2016 by Los Sabande-ños.
The hugely successful Canary group has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary and is still as much an icon as ever.
The free concert coincided with the Fiestas de San Antonio Abad.
Thirty members of the group offered the audience a repertoire of songs from their long musical career, such as the Cantos Canarios de Teobaldo Power, diverse boleros, polkas and the hymn of Lucha Canaria.
The group has nearly 100 albums to its credit, many concerts, extensive international concerts and collaborations with artists such as María Dolores Pradera, Silvio Rodríguez and Alfredo Kraus.
In these 50 years, they have addressed the different genres of Canary folk repertoire and the Hispanic American songbook, a period in which they have received numerous awards and distinctions.
