Dia de la Musica

10 June 2012 | El Centro
Taya
Yesterday was another annual festival in Mazatlan. This one was a musical festival, featuring 19 different bands, with as many types of music. They had set up platforms in 5 different venues throughout downtown Mazatlan. The shows started at 19:30 and wounded up past midnight. Musical groups alternated every hour.

The venues were covered by local television stations and Lynne was interviewed in Spanish. It was all very exciting. One of the venues featured the Maria Teresa Barreda Quartet. We know both Nacho and Maria Teresa well and are friends of ours.

We arrived downtown with four friends, and had an early dinner at the very good Restaurant Molika, located close to Plazuela Machado. We were 10 minutes from Escenario Fusion, where our friends were playing, starting at 19:30. Four different bands succeeded each other every hour. That is why the stage appears cluttered with speakers etc on the pictures in our "Photo Gallery".

The performance was memorable and we really enjoyed that "Dia de la Musica" or Day of Music in Mazatlan.
