Music so Close

Some of you I think that you know Sofar Sounds, maybe because you have one of its delegations at your city, or you have read it about it on newspapers or internet.
Since March, we have the opportunity at Murcia to live this experience: Sofar, songs from a room.
MurciaDailyPhoto was invited to the third Sofar concert last June 17th. It was a pleasure for me to be in that beautiful place thanks to the hosting of Maria Moya (an illustrator) and the organization of Nieves Martí as delegate of Sofar Sounds in Murcia.
Three bands in acoustic or semi-acoustic format had the chance to play in front of a few guests (around 20 people). Awesome this format so close.
The bands: Rey Lobo (top-right, from Murcia), Mario Morante (bottom-left, from Madrid) and Analogic (bottom-right, from Murcia).

Taiwan at Burial of the Sardine

One week ago, this parade was held: Burial of the Sardine (Entierro de la Sardina). A fiesta of Internatiomal Touristic Interest.
As I commented on a previous post, this year had been invited to this fiesta seven groups from seven foreign countries. Each year, the organization of this event by the "Sardineros" is increasing the popularity, the number of foreign groups, the number of toys that are given away (or throwing to people), ... and those increase the number of visitors who come to the city to see and to enjoy this festival and the entire Spring Festival Week.
