Copla and jazz fusion on a moonlight night


Martirio and Chano Domínguez opened on Friday evening, in Plaza Cardenal Belluga, the XXII edition of the Murcia Tres Culturas festival

The International Festival of Tolerance of Murcia Tres Culturas welcomed its XXIIth edition on Friday with two outstanding Spanish artists sharing their music on stage: Martirio and Chano Domínguez.

The Plaza del Cardenal Belluga was responsible for welcoming the public and creators to an evening dedicated to the fusion of copla and jazz. Martirio and Chano Domínguez arrived in Murcia with a show commemorating the 25th anniversary of the release of the album ‘Coplas de madrugá’, an album recorded by Martirio and the Chano Domínguez trio, together with Javier Colina on double bass and Guillermo McGill on drums . On this occasion, the artists were accompanied live by Horacio Fumero on double bass and David Xirgu on drums.

Together on Friday evening they discussed the great compositions of an album consisting of eleven verses adapted to jazz, with arrangements by Chano Domínguez and the adaptation of the melodies to the new rhythms, in the interpretation of Martirio. ‘Dicen’, ‘Ojos Verdes’ or ‘Tattoo’ are some of the songs on an album that had its second part in ‘Acoplados’, a recording accompanied by the Radio Televisión Española Orchestra, conducted by Adrián Leaper, and Bob Sands’ Big Band and arrangements by the well-known Carles Cases, Lluis Vidal and Jumillano Roque Baños.

The festival continues this Saturday with a performance by the Murcia City Youth Orchestra of the Orfeón Murciano Fernández Caballero, who will perform a program of works by Schumann at the Teatro Circo on Saturday afternoon at 8 p.m. Conducted by Raúl López, Estalisnao Gómez, Marc Penadés, Llorenç Tormo and Salvador García perform as soloists.

The facade of the cathedral will once again witness a musical evening with a proposal from the Arab Orchestra of Barcelona, ​​which will discuss 20 years of shared Mediterranean music this Saturday at 10 p.m., a show consisting of a repertoire of musical pieces which travels through two musical decades, with special collaborations, with the Arab Orchestra of Barcelona being the musical axis of the show, with a repertoire that the group has performed in more than forty countries. In addition to the basic line-up, representatives of classical groups from the Arab and Mediterranean fusion music scene will participate, such as Moulay Cherif from Nass Marrakech and Yacine Belahcene from Cheb Baloski.
