The Pueblos Blancos Stages
Artists (more to come)
Ronda, Spain "the City of Dreams", we'll have nightly shows during the festival at the spectacular clifftop, Auditorio Blas Infante (circled in red); it's unreal; like you dropped a Roman amphitheater on top of a natural rock monolith!
Montejaque, We'll have day & night shows, & other celebrations in the beautiful Plaza Constitución
We'll have a Saturday evening show another spectacular cliff top venue, the Mirador del Tajo!
Of all the towns on the Pueblos Blancos route in the Sierra de Cadiz, this one sits at the highest altitude. Situated within the natural park of the Sierra de Grazalema, its location offers such fascinating places as the La Yedra and La Rajada caves, where remains from the Neolithic period have been found. Several monuments stand out, such as the 16th century church of San Miguel, the cemetery (once church) of El Salvador, and the bullring, which is built entirely out of stone....
Joe King Carrasco (Puerto Vallarta, Mexico/Austin)
Tex-Mex, "Nuevo Wavo", Rock & Roll with Latin Rhythms & Tequila Reggae!
Texas music legend, Joe King Carrasco is a true troubadour with a storied career of over 4-decades. He has played with too many greats to list & his songs have been recorded by other great artists, like the Texas Tornadoes & Mano Negra/Manu Chao. The late, great, Michael Jackson even sang on his record “Don’t Let A Woman (Make A Fool Out Of You)”! Joe King creates a stylistic borderland of pop, rock & Latin rhythms. His cross-cultural stew blends cumbias, vamp, salsa, surf, reggae, blues, & Latin-tinged polkas. Born in the dusty little west-Texas town of Dumas, Joe King spends much time in San Antonio, Austin & Central America; he now lives in Puerto Vallarta where he has his own "Mex-Tex" restaurant & club, Nacho Daddy! So happy to have him coming to Andalusia!!!
