If you feel like doing something different the weekend of October the 30th, pack your bags and come to Puerto Rico. The South of the island is already rumbling in preparation for the 2014 Fiestas Patronales de Peñuelas. They have invited 4 performers that have won 10 Grammy Awards in the past years. All this is for free. The performers are:
Kany García – With ten (10) nominations and three (3) awards, this professional musician, signer, and songwriter has one of the most most privileged voices in today Puerto Rico. You will be able to listen to her songs, which are sensitive, intelligent, and sometimes irreverent. She will be performing on Saturday, November the 1st. Check out her interesting biography.
Sie7e – This performer sang in Peñuelas on 2011, without knowing that he would end up winning a “Best New Artist Award” the same year. His style combines rock, pop and blues with tropical sounds such as salsa, batucada and reggae. His lyrics are full of social awareness, humor, irony and love.
Milly Quezada – This Dominican singer is very close to Puerto Ricans, as she married here and became a mom in the island. She has won four (4) awards and is known as the “Queen of Merengue”, which gives you an idea of her talent and stature in the merengue scene. If you are lucky, she will sing one of her most famous songs “Volvió Juanita”. Bring comfortable shoes to dance, since merengue and Milly’s performances are irresistible.
Elvin Crespo – This merengue performer is a winner of two (2) awards. His sticky song Suavemente became a sensation in the late 90s. It was the only Spanish song chosen by the astronauts in the 2006 Discovery space mission. His talent and charisma has kept driving crazy his fans decade after decade.
Peñuelas is a small town located in the South of Puerto Rico. It is known as the “Flamboyant Valley” due to the abundance of beautiful trees with red flowers called “flamboyanes”. The view of these trees by the side of roads in the countryside is spectacular and the best time to watch them is Summer.
