"Where there is flamenco, there will be La Unión" (03/08/2018)

Jesús Álvarez Cervantes sealed with a lyric-filled proclamation the link between the Álvarez family and the International Festival of Cante de las Minas.

The sports journalist Jesús Álvarez Cervantes gave the opening speech of the 58th edition of the International Festival of Cante de las Minas.

True to his close and close style, Álvarez conquered the public that filled the Old Public Market of La Unión with two strokes.

The presenter of TVE, with his voice of announcer marred some verses of Lope de Vega that served to engage spectators who wanted to meet the continuator of a saga of town crier who began in 1961 with Jesus Alvarez Garcia, father of the crier of this edition.

Álvarez Cervantes himself had words of remembrance for his father and was moved by remembering his figure and how he and an enthusiast Esteban Bernal contributed to "this festival is alive, more alive every year, because it is unbreakable their spirit of union, making honor to its land and discovery of the talent that is forged in the voices, the body and the instruments that sound every year in La Unión "

The sports journalist had a recognition for the idiosyncrasies of the Sierra Minera and the quejío mining "flamenco, is indisputable food not only of the individual senses, but the collective day to day of the Union and everything that represents this mining land and Levantine "

And he extolled the great festival that has 58 continuous editions held "You are the epicenter of the feeling that comes out of the deep cante and you are protagonists of a story as passionate and profound as the mines that have forged the character of all your history"

Winners Gala

The Filón 2017 prize was opened by the instrumentalist Sergio de Lope, who delighted the audience with the sounds of his flute.

His melodies accompanied by his guitar, cante and percussion were refining the senses for the entry into the scene of the first of Fernando Jiménez's dances that he squandered strength and delivery in the tables that elevated him to the 2017 Desplante Prize.

After him, the sweet and virtuosos compasses of the guitarist Alejandro Hurtado García, Bordón award, delighted with his subtlety to the guitar and reviewed different styles within his great virtuosity.

He returned the Sevillian Fernando Jimenez with a cane full of brio and substance that left the stalls prepared for the entry of Alfredo Tejada

The last winner of the Lámpara Minera, Alfredo Tejada from Malaga once again dazzled the cathedral of cante with his broken voice that earned him the triumph of the last edition of the International Festival of Cante de las Minas in a performance full of power and with that degree that gives the experience of bringing the light of the Mining Lamp this year.

Started with a letter dedicated to his daughter Lola who was born shortly after winning in La Union.

Little by little he was delivering his art for each of the six clubs he played ending with a cuplé.

Tomorrow, the flamenco galas will begin at the Old Public Market with the jondo voice of Miguel Ortega, winner of the Lámpara Minera in 2010, and the voice of Diana Navarro, with her "Resilencia".
