For the last week there have been cultural events in the town of Alhabia. Most of the activities were for children but there were two musical events that we attended.
The week opened on the previous Saturday with a concert in the lovely square performed by the town band joining with another band from the town of Villanueva de Arzobispo in Jean.
The young musicians performed brilliantly in front of an appreciative audience on a beautiful summer night.
Last night, the week closed with a concert by the singer from Almeria, Sensi Falán in the municipal theatre of Alhabia.
Her performance was titled “Las Mujeres de La Chanca” and she recited anecdotes of the women from this old barrio of Almeria City in between singing traditional songs, such as ‘Los Cuatro Muleros’ by Federico Garcia Lorca.
Her only props were a table, a chair and a basket filled with objects relating to the different characters she portrayed.
