Cantigas de Mayo returns to Molina with concerts by Ruibal and Pedro Guerra


Three decades after the last edition, the Molina de Segura City Council has decided to return Cantigas de Mayo, a prestigious exhibition that became a benchmark for author history with more than a dozen editions in the late 1990s. song On this occasion, with a meeting formula for singer-songwriters, it will be held on Friday, May 5 at 9 p.m. at the Villa de Molina Theater in the presence of two established singer-songwriters: Javier Ruibal and Pedro Guerra . Other artists from the region, such as David Moya, David de Gregorio or Noa Caleo, will participate as guests in this edition, said the representative of the Cantigas de Mayo Cultural Association, Juan Antonio García Cortés. The Department of Culture is recovering an event that was created in 1997 as a tribute to the Portuguese singer José Afonso. The competition introduced artists such as Rozalén, el Kanka, Mikel Izal, El Niño de la Hipoteca, Zahara, Marwan… or the people of Molinense I bite, Diego Cantero, tightrope walker or Road Ramos. The support of singers already consolidated, such as Jorge Drexler, Chavela Vargas, Joao Afonso, Labordeta, Luis Pastor or Guerra himself, among others, was essential for the consolidation. The work of the city council and the Cantigas de Mayo Cultural Association is thus restoring a “necessary” festival, according to Nortes. The poster was created by the Galician author Leandro Lamas and retains the hallmark of previous editions. Two references Javier Ruibal, winner of a Goya and the National Prize for Contemporary Music, is the author of songs like ‘Flor de Istambul’ or ‘La reina de África’ on records that will go down in history as ‘Pensión Triana’. He will open the concert, with his mix of southern and Mediterranean music, with a touch of Maghreb. Canarian singer Pedro Guerra is perhaps the author who best represents the resurgence of singer-songwriters, with the new crop of young musicians in the late 90s, along with Javier Álvarez and Ismael Serrano; his essential album ‘Golosinas’ made him known. The presale price is 20 euros (25 at the box office).
