With rhythms and choreographies of Latin music begins this Saturday, August 3, the cycle 'A la luna de Barranda', organized by the City Council of Caravaca de la Cruz, through its Department of Culture, in collaboration with the Museum of the Ethnic Music of Barranda, space where the four free concerts planned for this month of August are held.

The group 'Latin Son' will be responsible for opening the program, at 10.30 pm, in the courtyard of the museum that houses the collection of musicologist Carlos Blanco Fadol.

This training, composed of six musicians and an instrumental variety, will review the successes of bachata, salsa and merengue.

The second of the concerts will arrive on August 10 from the hand of 'Bosco', a community of artists that mix music, poetry, nature and covens on a journey of experiences.

The music of the Murcian group has a particular personality that has taken them to stages throughout Spain, with a combination of styles such as rock, psychedelia, folk, reggae, afrobeat or jazz and incursions into sound experimentation, the Mantras and shamanic songs.

'Crudo Pimento', one of the formations that is making history interpreting the foundations of popular music in a very personal way, will take the stage of the Museum of Ethnic Music on Saturday, August 17.

Raúl Frutos and Inma Gómez have devoured their referents;

the influences are contingent on fueling overwhelming talent.

Pungent blues, reggae or jazz improvisation are part of the particular essence of 'Crudo Pimento'.

The Cartagena guitarist Miguel Ángel Solano, accompanied by his group of experienced musicians, will be responsible for closing the concert series 'A la luna de Barranda' on August 24.

The classical guitar teacher will present different flamenco styles and styles created by him, such as zapateado, tangos, taranta and nana by guajiras.

Instrumental music will alternate with singing and dancing performances, thus presenting flamenco in all its aspects.

He will be accompanied on stage by several long-time musicians and the dancer Beatriz Arce, trained with great choreographers and flamenco dance teachers.

All concerts of the 'A la luna de Barranda' cycle take place at 10.30 pm, in the courtyard of the Museum of Ethnic Music, with free access until capacity is reached.

The Barranda Ethnic Music Museum

During the first six months of the year more than six thousand people have toured the Museum of Ethical Music, almost 300 people more than in the same period of the previous year.

Throughout the year 2018, there were 11,324 visitors who passed through the museum.

In this museum space, included in the Network of Museums of the Region of Murcia, a varied sample of the musical culture of 145 countries is collected.

The museum houses a large part of the instruments of the Carlos Blanco Fadol collection, a musicologist who has traveled countries of all continents for years, contacting ethnic groups that still retain the increasingly scarce traditional instruments, as well as music, stories and legends of dating back from the third century BC to the twentieth century.

The instruments stand out for their exoticism, authenticity and spectacularity, presenting sizes as different as the small barley stalk clarinet of Belarus, up to the gigantic Chinese drum, which reaches almost four meters high.

Most of the pieces in the collection are no longer used in their places of origin, as they are displaced by new musical trends or small groups of musicians.
