THE Palacete de la Najarra in Almuñecar hosts what is sure to be an unforgettable concert by the Bolero quartet Amaranto at 10pm on Sunday, August 14.
With a classical structure, the group plays in the most traditional style of quartets that have always been popular in Puerto Rico, covering the most prestigious Cuban boleros and taking the audience on a journey through the history of this slow-tempo dance form.
They will also play some of their own compositions in a style they have dubbed the flower of love, missing their distinctive sound with hotter, more up-tempo rhythms such as the guaracha or bosanova.
The Cuban bolero originated in the late 19th century, becoming the most popular lyrical tradition throughout much of Latin America, and it is not related to the Spanish dance of the same name.
Tickets for the gig are priced at €12 and can be picked up from the Palacete itself or the Viajes Ecuador travel agency in Almuñecar centre.
