SANTANDER, 25 YEARS (EUROPA PRESS)
The International University Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP) and RNE in Cantabria will celebrate their respective anniversaries –for their 90th and 50th years, respectively– with a concert this Wednesday July 27 in La Magdalena, which will be performed by Rulo, Los Deltonos and four other national indie and pop bands with Cantabrian roots.
The concert, whose program is completed by Los Estanques, Betacam, Malamute and Marcellus Wallace, will take place, from 9:00 p.m., in the Patio de Caballerizas. The event will be hosted by Nacho Álvaro ‘El Patillas’ and will be broadcast live on RTVE and Radio3.
This was announced this Monday during a press conference by the rector of the UIMP, Carlos Andradas, and Jaime Aja, director of RTVE in Cantabria. At their side, Irene Gutiérrez Edilla, half of the Malamute duo, and Hendrik Röver, singer and composer of Los Deltonos.
Andradas explained that the UIMP is organizing this event as part of its commitment to “support and spread culture, of which music is a part”. According to him, hosting a concert of this nature is “a unique opportunity” to taste “the best birthday cake”.
Jaime Aja, for his part, highlighted the importance of this event, in which, as he pointed out, for the first time, “a public radio and television, as well as a public university, send a message to the world on what musicians create in Cantabria”.
All the groups that will perform at the concert have Cantabrian roots, although many of them have great national projection.
This is the case of Rulo, who this summer celebrates 25 years of music with a tour that takes him all over the country and which next Wednesday will stop in Santander.
Los Estanques, on the other hand, are a psychedelic pop group born in Cantabria but based in Madrid and who have just released a new album, “Comfortable Bubble and Unexpected Elephant”.
Meanwhile, Los Deltonos is one of the oldest bands on the Cantabrian scene. Hendrik Röver’s group will be responsible for bringing guitar rock into the night.
The Cantabrian-Madrid Malamute duo will also be at the Magdalena, with pop songs from their recently released LP ‘Una gran decepción’, as well as the funk rock of Marcellus Wallace, which will bring their visual and energetic live to the party.
Additionally, Torrelaveguense musician Javier Carrasco will perform some of the songs from his solo project, Betacam. In addition, he recently presented ‘A slave, a servant’, a single taken from his upcoming album which will be released after the summer.
This anniversary concert is part of the program of cultural activities that the International University Menéndez Pelayo carries out, alongside the summer courses, to celebrate its 90 years of history under the slogan “90 years to advance towards coming “.
Thus, this action is added to other acts such as the delivery of the commemorative medal of the anniversary of the institution to various personalities or the video mapping that will be carried out on the facade of the Palacio de la Magdalena on August 23.
For its part, RNE Cantabria is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this is not the only commemorative activity in which the University and the station have collaborated. And it is that last Tuesday, the 19th, a special program was broadcast from the Palacio de la Magdalena, headquarters of the UIMP, “The mornings of RNE with íñigo Alfonso”.
