Ronda Guitar Festival

If you are visiting Ronda during the week from the 6th to the 10th of June 2017 then you are in for a treat as the Ronda Guitar House are running their Guitar Festival.

RONDA GUITAR FESTIVAL aims to put Ronda on the map as a meeting point to enjoy Andalucian culture, Spanish music and in particular the Spanish guitar.  Celebrated over five days  the Ronda Guitar Festival will host a range of interesting activities in which to participate.  Fine Guitar makers will exhibit their hand-made guitars and be on hand to answer any queries.  Internationally renowned guitarists will perform concerts in unforgettable venues, followed by the opportunity to attend a masterclass.  There will be conferences and wine-tasting events to compliment the festival.

I highly recommend booking in advance because of the popularity of the concerts and the limited tickets available… get in touch with the Guitar House in Ronda to arrange your tickets…

The Guitar House in Ronda

Located halfway between the Bullring and the Church Nuestra Señora de la Merced, RONDA GUITAR HOUSE is a unique space dedicated to Spanish music and in particular the Spanish guitar. The resident guitarist Pacoseco performs two concerts each evening presenting the Spanish guitar in both classical and flamenco styles. There is an exhibition of hand-made guitars and their accompanying accessories(some for sale). Also offered are intensive short courses, weekly and one-off classes in both classical and flamenco guitar, practical advice on technique, posture, and discipline readily available.

Well worth a visit any time of year.

Lucho and Leticia Perform in Ronda

Whilst you are walking from the new bridge towards the bullring past the parador with the gorge on your left you will most probably hear the beautiful soft melodies of Lucho and Leticia on the breeze.

Lucho, who is originally from South America, gives a wonderful solo on pan flute, and singing, and is a good partner to Leticia’s voice and harp with his flutes, guitars, and authentic Andean instruments for creating the sound of waves or insects creaking.

Leticia on the other hand plays harp, sings, and whistles, the whistle being quite amazing, at times sounding exactly like Amazonian birds. Her voice is clear, and carries far across the terraces.

Stay for a while, listen and soak up the atmosphere.

You can find more of their music on youtube.

The last two days of the feria coincide with one of the highlights of the Spanish bullfighting calendar, the Corrida Goyesca.

Celia Morales, a truly talented Flamenco guitarist in Ronda

No trip to Ronda would be complete without hearing at least a small amount of Flamenco guitar. But to visit one of Celias concerts is an absolute treat. She is one of the most talented flamenco guitarist I have ever heard and she can be seen playing at Calle Calvo Asensio, 8. (RONDA) at 7.70pm most nights.

At 10 euros per person, the entrance fee is amazingly cheap to see this wonderful composer and musician. You can go to her website and hear some of her work as the music starts to load as you open the home page. Check out the below video to see here in action. Truly talented.
