As part of its Cultural week, the Ayuntamiento of Canillas de Albaida proudly presents the Fourth Night of Multi-cultural Music and Dance to be held in the Plaza (main square) in Canillas de Albaida on Sunday 4th October. Admission to the event is free but there will be opportunities to donate to local charities. The idea behind the event is to create an evening of music originating from as many countries as possible and we have performers from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, England, Ireland, Wales, Sardinia, Africa, Holland and France. The event will be hosted by Inez Leniere and Roger Sparks in Spanish and English and they will open the concert at 7.15pm. The first artists to perform will be local duo, Acoustic Roots, comprising of Roger Sparks and Mitch France. They will play a lively set of songs and tunes from around the World on guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele. Acoustic Roots will also finish the night off with a set of music for dancing to. Up next will be Fabel y Rayden, a sister and brother act from Cómpeta with Fabel on piano and vocals and Rayden bringing a little American dance culture to the evening, should be interesting. Barba Pipers are next to entertain you and they will play 2 sets during the evening of Celtic music from Ireland, France and Spain with Frenchman Jerome Hippolyte on Irish pipes, French bagpipes and low whistle, Meigan from Wales on tin and low whistle, guitar and vocals and John who is Irish on fiddle, guitar and mandolin. Originating from England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Sardinia, Los Aquimistas will be playing a mix of swing, blues and jazz, a fusion of cultures, languages, passions, styles and colours to lift the spirits. Africa and The Netherlands will be well represented by Xenophone - African Percussion, 2 Africans and a Dutch couple performing a very exciting set of percussive pieces to include some African dancing. Following on will be Aire Flamenco, a band of 3 musicians, from Cómpeta and Árchez. They play all styles of music, rock & roll, reggea, etc, although they recognize that Spanish music is their first love. Biddies que Bailan Irish Dancers (all local) will then perform an 8 hand reel followed by a ceilidh where you the audience have a chance to take part. This unique multi-cultural night of music was a huge success in previous years, please come along and make sure it is just as successful again this year. There will be an opportunity to donate to a local charitiy. For Youtube footage previous concerts, key in "Canillas
