ALMERIA, 1 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The carnival of Almeria has been lifted this Friday the curtain with the start of the contest of groupings carnivalesque that this year will count with the previous stage of quarter-finals, an initial round in which participate up to 24 formations, concretely eight groups, 14 street musicians and two parodies, half of them from Almería capital and province.
According to concrete city Hall in a press note, the other 12 groups are from the provinces of Málaga, Granada, Jaén, Murcia and Alicante, made that plant as an indicator of the “growing interest” that awakens the carnival of Almeria.
This phase of the quarterfinals will be extended until this Tuesday 4. It will be from 7 to 9 when developing the semi-finals, also at the Teatro Apollo, while the grand final will be on Saturday 15 in the Municipal Auditorium Maestro Padilla, as they have scheduled the Area of Culture and Education of the City of Almería and the Municipal Federation of Carnival of Almería Capital (Femaca).
You had the always difficult task of opening the contest was la murga de Almería capital, led by a historical carnival as Mariano, at the front of This ‘funny hooked’. Type of homeless person with dreadlocks who managed to master the medley, pulling the rumbas street most popular.
The category most passionate of the contest is always the parades. In it, she premiered the session, from Granada, ‘that damn band’, a group of women who last year managed to sneak in at the end with ‘The divine puppet’ and this Friday they made an imposing start in the scene with altar, funerary mexican and a type of coconut.
The big surprise of the night came from the hand of ‘Those who came from outside and stayed stone’, murga almeria which was embroidered the type of the statue of John Lennon in the Plaza Flores, doing well in the repertoire of many songs of the Liverpool to its couplets, with a lineup that could see two members usual quartets, which strengthened the side to the comedian.
The first session would end, again travelling to Granada, with ‘The past’. Those who last year were ‘Enigma’ brought you this time a type of conceptual explorers, survivors to the end of the world caused by the world wars and the abuse of the environment. A very risky bet that there will be a wait if convinced or not the jury.
