‘Virgen del Carmen’ Celebrations this Weekend in Benalmadena

Virgen del Carmen Celebrations in Benalmadena

The ‘Virgen del Carmen‘ celebrations take place in Benalmadena Marina this weekend (from Saturday).

The Benalmadena town hall has prepared various events which will take place on Saturday 13th, Sunday 14th, Monday 15th, and Tuesday 16th July,  including a wonderful procession through the streets of Benalmádena Costa in which the fishermen will carry their ‘Stella Maris’ to the Marina. She’ll be lifted aboard a boat and paraded along the Benalmadena coastline (weather permitting).

If you’ve got some good binoculars, a great place to watch this is from the terrace in our Panorama Bar here at Sunset Beach Club or from the promenade just in front of the hotel. (more…)

During July and August, you can enjoy four free concerts featuring artists from Germany, England, Cuba and Spain.

The event organiser, Javier Salinas from the Clarence Jazz Club, stated that

“The concerts seek the diversity of genres within jazz itself with an international focus”.

Salinas also added that this year’s festival will also feature short performances from locally-based violinist Konstantin Merezhnikov, as well as a diverse gastronomic offering with a selection of food trucks.

Dates and times for all the concerts:

Monday 8th July

The Ralph Moore Quintet will take to the stage with a more contemporary jazz style. Moore recorded and toured in the 80s and early 90s with some of the genre’s greatest artists.

Monday 22nd July

Pedro Pablo & Three Cuban Jazz Feat Andiley Mojena. A Cuban musician with a long and impressive musical career whose objective is to share an experience of a performance in which the real protagonist is the true sound of Cuban Jazz from the golden years of the 30s, 40s and 50s.

Monday 5th August

German band ‘The Sazerac Swingers’ take to the stage and will take us back to the 20’s, the era when jazz music started to take over dance clubs all over the world.

Monday 19th August

Spanish group ‘Swing For Five’ will take us through the soundtrack of the 20th century, offering tunes that form part of the basic jazz repertoire because they were written for cinema or because the musicians transformed it into jazz. Some of the tracks they will play belong to classics like Pinocchio or the Wizard of Oz.

If you’re planning on visiting the Torremolinos Jazz Festival over the summer and are looking for accommodation, Sunset Beach Club hotel is just a few minutes drive from Parque de la Bateria. You can check availability and prices here www.sunsetbeachclub.com.
