Today starts the V Festival Jazz Vejer, an event we support once again. This year’s edition has a new format adapted to the current situation, “many concerts with reduced seating capacity in eight different venues in the old town”, says Nacho de Corral, one of the organisers. A total of 37 concerts will be held from today until 11 July.
The Tetería del Califa and its new panoramic terrace will be one of the places where you can enjoy the best music with spectacular views of the town and the countryside. A complete experience that “starts from the moment you enter the Califa door and walk through the labyrinth of corridors until you reach the restaurant, passing through the Cilla Vieja street, one of the most typical and colourful in the village, adorned with a multitude of flowerpots, which give it a special charm”. This, together with the light of the sunset and the live music that will be played on the terrace, “is going to be wonderful”, he adds.
These concerts will take place at sunset, three in total. The blues and soul of the singer-songwriter Paula Bilá from Cádiz will be the first performance to be held at the tea shop, today Thursday at 21:00. Tito Alcedo and Nono García, “two eminent figures in the guitar world” will take the stage tomorrow, Friday 9 July, and finally, it will be the turn of Rafael de Utrera, “a singer who has toured with Paco de Lucía and has a very special voice”. Three exciting concerts in a dream setting.
The restaurant Corredera 55, of Califa Group, will offer three other concerts starting tomorrow Friday at 22:30 with Maresia, continuing on Saturday with Félix Slim and finishing on Sunday at 16:30 with the Melchor Campuzano quartet. There are still a few places left for this last performance, you can book your table on 621 262 869 (whatsapp).
From El Califa we are very proud to sponsor the festival for another year, with the aim of supporting culture and helping to enrich Vejer’s leisure offer.
According to Nacho de Corral, “El Califa has been a sponsor of the Vejer Jazz Festival since the first year, 2016, James showed us his support from the first moment we went to talk to him. I remember that in the first edition, as we couldn’t hold the performances in El Jardín del Califa due to lack of space, we held them in the Plaza de España, so he couldn’t benefit directly, as the customers couldn’t see the concert from the restaurant, even so, he told us a phrase that has always stayed with me: ‘what’s good for Vejer is good for me’. He has always had a special vision of what is good for Vejer and has been a pioneer in everything he has done. For us he is a point of reference in the town and the Califa brand is Vejer’s main brand, so for us he is an essential travelling companion. We know that it has been a complicated year and, for this reason, we are even more grateful for the collaboration”.
We wish you to enjoy life and Vejer, to the rhythm of the best music, always, of course, complying with all safety measures!
