The Embassy of Spain in Kuwait in collaboration with The National Council For Culture, Arts & Letters of Kuwait invites you to a concert of the Spanish folk-rock group "Tejedor" at the the 19th Al Qurain Festival (2013).
The concert is free for the public, and will be held on Friday the 25th of January 2013 at 7:30 PM at the Kuwait National Museum Auditorium located on the Gulf Road at Qiblah.
The Tejedor band is composed of José Manuel TEJEDOR: pipe and flute, Javier TEJEDOR: accordion, Silvia QUESADA: voice and tambourine, Juan José DIAZ: percussion, and Rubén ALVAREZ: guitars.
The Tejedor band is renown for playing the so called “celtic music”, which at many times is referred to folk music from Ireland, Scotland and Bretagne, but is also bizarrely present to the regions of Asturias and Galicia in northern Spain. Some of the most popular celtic music festivals take place in Ortigueira (Galicia) and Aviles (Asturias) in Spain. These regions are the cradle of well known musicians –including some of the best pipe players in the world- and groups from the celtic music panorama: Jose Angel Hevia (who created the electronic pipe and had a worldwide success in 1999) and others. This Asturian group, Tejedor, is a highlight in this short list of Spanish folk artists.
After a decade focused to studying and interpreting traditional Asturian music, the Tejedor family (José Manuel, Javier and their sister Eva, the singer in the group) accomplished great success and recieved more than 20 Spanish and international prizes by that time. They have also accompanied great artists such as Van Morrison and Sinead O´Connor on the stages of Spain and France and they have collaborated in the works of other musicians in the Spanish and European scene such as Victor Manuel, El Sueño de Morfeo, and Ella Baila Sola.
