Tenerife boasts the highest peak in Spain, but also myriad cultural events within easy reach of Abama Luxury Residences. As the days heat up, so too, does the cultural agenda, and concerts abound featuring the whole gamut of musical styles. Be it disco or tango you love, take a look at these not-to-be-missed events on our shores this summer.
Festival Internacional Canarias Jazz & Más Heineken
The 28th edition of the Festival Internacional Canarias Jazz & Más Heineken showcases some of the best global jazz talent of today and is headlined by the acclaimed Maceo Parker. Best known for his collaboration with James Brown, Parker is a living legend who has picked up many prestigious awards throughout his lifetime. He was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2011 and awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from Victoires Du Jazz in Paris. Synonymous with funk, this big-name ticket is playing in Tenerife on the 20th of July in Puerto de la Cruz, at a little over an hour’s drive from Abama.
A little closer to home, in the Plaza del C.C. Salytién, residents of Abama can see in concert, as part of the festival, Sinne Eeg & Peter Sprague/Tony DeSare. Considered to be one of Europe’s best jazz vocalists, the Danish Eeg teams up with American guitarist Peter Sprague for a concert that promises to unite their sublime technical and musical skills and ensure an unforgettable night of jazz talent.
Added to this spectacular line-up are other jazz greats that are sure to appeal to some of our Abama residents. Concerts take place in various venues around the island and a full festival programme can be downloaded here, and you can purchase tickets here.
ARN Music Festival
If the names Nenah Cherry, Hercules & Love Affair, Miss Caffeina, Monarchy, Nancys Rubias, Putochinomaricon, Lawrence Casal, David Rees and La Jalada invoke excitement in you, then you won’t want to miss the two days of free concerts taking place as part of the ARN Music Festival. A concert highlighting Equal Human Rights for the LGTBIQ community in line with the UN’s 2030 Social Sustainability project, this concert stars Nenah Cherry, a veteran musician who rose to fame with her hit single, “Buffalo Stance”, and has continued to produce music to great acclaim. Taking place in Playa de las Americas, the two days of concerts aim to be inclusive of all audiences and promote a message of human rights of all people, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnic origin, language, religion, sexual condition, gender identity, or other.
However, if an evening concert at the beach doesn’t appeal or you favour more traditional or classical performances, be sure to get your tickets for the legendary Roger Hodgson playing at the Pabellón Santiago Martín de La Laguna on 27th July. Featuring this internationally acclaimed artist, the event promises to be a spectacular night out with sing-along favourites such as “Give a Little Bit”, “Goodbye Stranger”, “Dreamer”, and “Take The Long Way Home”.
Queen tribute band
And if you want to linger in the same musical era, you might like a Queen tribute concert. On the “IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? TOUR” and part of the best Queen tribute band working today, Pablo Padín, playing the role of Freddie Mercury, not only impresses with his vocal likeness but also with a striking physical resemblance, and he and the band manage to create an outstanding two-hour performance proving that the magic of Queen is still alive. An incomparable event for fans and non-fans alike. They play on the 2nd of August at the Parking del Palmetum in Santa Cruz, and tickets can be purchased here.
Also at the emblematic Pabellón Santiago Martín de La Laguna this summer are a number of big-name Spanish-language artists. Vanesa Martín, Melendi and hugely popular Mexico-born Carlos Rivera all have dates at this venue and provide a great chance to learn more about these musicians just an hour from Abama.
