The Castle hosts the II Festival "Sounds Fortaleza" with the concerts of the great Lebanese violinist Ara Malikian and the Oscar-winning and double Grammy Jorge Drexler (19/07/2018)

The Councilor for Culture in the City of Lorca, Agustín Llamas, has reported that the Castle of Lorca will host the 26th and 28th of July the concerts of the Fortaleza Sound Festival, which celebrates its second edition this year.

Ara Malikian brings to Lorca his new tour titled "The Incredible World Tour of Violin" (The incredible world tour of the violin).

It is a bet to recover something as typically Spanish as the Corral de Comedias, an enclave that constitutes the leitmotiv of the violinist in this second part of the tour, being the guiding thread that will direct the whole show and the place where Malikian will reel his music.

Ara leads the audience accompanied by an impressive band that ranges from classical music to rock, through waltzes and idiosyncratic fanfares from the Balkans.

Drums, guitar, viola, cello, double bass and Indian percussions guided by the most incredible bow-baton that the world has known in recent times.

There was no place for comedies that Spain and Ara Malikian goes back to that tradition, and includes in his show a dose of comedy, following the canons of entertain, excite, and show spaces for the vindication and reflection.

All this peppered with humor, thus bringing, in front of the stage, the impeccable interpretation of a whole band of virtuosos.

The opening of the doors of this concert will be at 9.45 pm and will start at 10.15 pm.

From the Town Hall will be free buses to access the Castle that will depart from 21 hours from La Merced.

It is described as a cataract of percussions, drums, loops and synthesizers, but all have been created with the guitar and its materials.

The strings, the wooden box, the skin of a banjo, the metal of a dobro, in short multiple elements that come from the guitar and have become a great band.

Registered between Mexico City and Madrid, Jorge Drexler has once again demonstrated a constant search for originality when creating and recording music.

Each album is a challenge for him and this time everything that sounds in his new songs has been recorded with guitar.
