Ramon Mirabet and Projecte Mut headline Saturday night concerts

foto-nit-concert-nadal-2018-3The culture office of the Formentera Council reports that Saturday December 15 will feature one of the marquee events of Christmas—a night of concerts in the festival tent of Sant Ferran. The evening gets started at 10.30pm with a show by Ramon Mirabet, followed by Ibizan stars Projecte Mut.

Ramon Mirabet
The task of getting things going falls to Ramon Mirabet, a Sant Feliu de Llobregat native who will present a brand-new, high-octane act that shuffles likely cuts for his forthcoming album and crowd favourites like “Happy Days” and “Home is where the heart is”. Mirabet conveys us to new soundscapes, though never losing an ounce of the character that has made him one of the most prominent on the Catalan music scene. And the show promises a surprise: a Formentera artist will join Mirabet on stage for a handful of songs.

Projecte Mut
Projecte Mut will close out the night with a mix incorporating tracks from their latest release, La Vida Rima, and no doubt a healthy dose of hits to electrify Formentera's concertgoers. David Serra sings and composes and Joan Barbé plays and produces—the pair journey into the world of folk-rock armed with a collection of songs that blend original lyrics with borrowed poetry from around the Catalan-speaking territories, their heavily acoustic sound is characterised by an intertwining of drums, electric and acoustic guitars, violin and the instruments of folk music on Eivissa and Formentera, like castanyoles, tambor pagès and espasí.

Culture councillor Susana Labrador encouraged the entire island to come out for the event, no small feature on the calendar of events this holiday season. “We're hoping to make Christmas on the island something special, so that islanders can get great musical acts like these without leaving the island”.
