Jazz & Fashion

Windmill at Las Negras

Arriving at Las Negras yesterday evening we parked beneath the old windmill which made a striking picture against the dramatic evening sky.

Zazz duo, Patrick and Richard

A night with an Indian theme was advertised at El Brindi Negro. We headed there intrigued. The tapas were very different from the usual and included some sushi which tasted as exquisite as they looked. Not a whiff of curry though: Oriental rather than Indian.

Patrick on sax

We settled at a table and listened to an English jazz duo, Patrick on sax and Richard on guitar, who were excellent.

One of the models

We were also entertained by a fashion show.

Another model with Paz behind

This was organised by Paz from the boutique, Gata Negra. Mention El Brindi Negro and she will give you some discount.

Two chicas and ….

Four rather self conscious models, two chicas and two muchachos, paraded around the bar.

…. two muchachos

The fashion would be better described as beach chic rather than Indian but the crowd in the bar seemed to be entertained.

A bit of Eastern decor

There was however a little bit of the East in some of the decor.

Patrick and Richard

We had an amusing and enjoyable evening. If you would like to book Richard and Patrick for a gig their phone numbers are 670243461 and 686388826, Email – rahill04628@yahoo.com.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
