Juan is back, to hit heights

LOVERS of Latin music are in for a real treat tomorrow (Saturday) with Juan Luis Guerra taking to the Golf Costa Adeje stage.

The Dominican Republic singer, considered by many to be one of the top Latin-American musicians of the day, returns to Adeje (his third time playing in South Tenerife).

He will be preceded on stage by top Cuban hip-hop group Orishas, who have reformed after a seven-year break.

Juan Luis Guerra (pictured), has sold over 30 million records, winning many Grammys and Latin Grammys.

He belongs to a growing group of internationally-recognised Latin artists, and his popular merengue and Afro-Latin fusion style has won him considerable success throughout Latin America.

But Juan does not limit himself to one style of music,  incorporating diverse rhythms like merengue, bachata-fusion, balada, salsa, gospel … and even rock ‘n’ roll!

Orishas, with two Latin Grammys under their musical belt,  have been listed by TIME magazines in the top-10 non-US bands. While the group were born in Paris in 1998, they are, in essence, a hip-hop group from Havana.

The band’s founding members are Yutuel Romera, Ruzzo Medina, Roldán González and Flaco-Pro, and, for this concert, Yutuel, Ruzzo and Roldán will be joined on stage by two trombonists, a keyboard player, a percussionist and a DJ.

Adeje Mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, at a press conference, mentioned Guerra’s strong connection to his Tenerife public, adding that everyone was looking forward to an excellent event, as part of the Adeje summer programme.

He said it was important for visitors to Adeje to have these  “quality out-door events such as this one” to enhance their holiday experience.

He added that this particular concert, of Latino music, “also has a lot to do with our identity, our culture, our history.”

Tickets for the concert are on sale through Ticketmaster.es, Ticketea.com, canariasviaja.com, entrees.es and El Corte Ingles.

There will also be tickets on sale at the site from 5pm on the day of the concert.

According to organisers, the show will feature top-class sound and lighting, and a number of giant screens to guarantee full views for all.

Doors, by the Avenida Ayyto, will open to the public at 5pm, with Orishas taking to the stage at 7pm and Juan Luis Guerra just before 9pm.

For security reasons, children under-six are not allowed to attend the concert, and those between the ages of 6-16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Concert-goers will not be allowed to enter the zone with food, drink, selfie-sticks, or items that might be potential weapons.

The organisers also remind people that, as is the norm, and for reasons of copyright, any photography or filming of the concert is strictly forbidden.

The concert is co-sponsored by Adeje Council and Cepsa, in collaboration with Golf Costa Adeje, Volkswagen, Sononpluss, Dorada sin con Limón and Pepsi Max Zero.
