On Saturday December 3rd three fantastic singers will be appearing at the Nerja Cultural Centre for a ‘Night of Coplas’.  A copla is a form of song which originated in Andalucia in the 1940’s, setting a poetic style of the same name to music.  The lyrics often cover themes of unrequited or impossible love, loss of freedom and death, a reflection of the time in which this musical genre developed.

The youngest singer at the ‘Noche de Coplas’ this weekend is Raquel Peña who began her career at 13 on a local television show in her home town near Sevilla and has since appeared on TV many times, including in the Canal Sur talent show for copla singers, ‘Se Llama Copla’.

Verónica Carmona is from a small town in Granada and has also appeared on ‘Se Llama Copla’ as well as on stage in musicals and in other TV shows.

The third singer is Mónica Márquez who is from Nerja.  Her first TV appearance was in 1991 as part of a folk group of singers and dancers and since then as a soloist she has appeared countless times on stage and TV, and also has a recording career.  As a fourth generation descendant of the great Malaga flamenco singer  ‘El Niño de las Moras’, it is no surprise that Mónica Márquez displays such talent.

The concert begins at 9pm and entry is €15
