International Music Day, Mojácar Pueblo

To celebrate the International Music Day, Mojácar village had a number of acts going on through the evening and night of June 21st. This was a new idea to help promote the village: the beautiful cubist mess of square white houses on the last hill of the Sierra Cabrera as it tumbles down to the Mediterranean. In the main plaza, and in a number of smaller squares and forgotten corners, musicians gathered, anxious to play. Some were very good, and the crowd was appreciative. What a setting: small bars with a few tables dominated by acoustic guitars, violins, trombones and singers. Next year, they promise, will be more. But keep it simple: no big electric bands for the Mojácar Pueblo International Music Day
