El Brindi Negro in Las Negras are now offering live entertainment every Saturday afternoon and yesterday we were treated to a belly-dancing show by Hiedra, accompanied by her partner Dani.

Hiedra performed three long dances in different outfits. First, she danced in this stunning blue costume.

For her second turn she wore a more traditional outfit with a wide belt and bra encrusted with sequins and glitter.



For her finale she wore this silver blue full-length Beledi dress. There was a good turn-out at the bar and Hiedra and Dani were able to meet old friends. Although they live in Orgiva, they spent several months in Las Negras a few years ago when Hiedra gave weekly belly-dancing classes at El Brindi.


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 pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. 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 portraiture and 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.
