The Alternative Music Festival of the Canary Islands programs four concerts in Lanzarote
The fourteenth edition of the FMAC – Festival of Alternative Music of the Canary Islands starts this year, from the first weekend of November, more generous and appetizing than ever. Up to a total of 27 artistic proposals will be distributed through different rooms in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and El Hierro. This festival is consolidated after thirteen successful calls in which roaming, diversity, plurality, avant-garde and identity make up its main hallmarks apart from bringing together all those alternative music projects worth showing in a single festival. and intermingle.
Saturday November 23 is when the concerts move to Lanzarote, specifically in La Grulla, with the bands Inadaptado and The Bucannan. It will be a night of wild rock if we stick to what the Inadapted Quartet can give of itself and a night of instro-surf and volcanic garage-punk from the Atlantic Ocean, if we leave the definition of the musical offer in the hands of The Bucannan.
Inadaptados is a rock and roll band that emerged in Lanzarote in 1990, whose components are Carlos Brito (bass), Javi Fuentes (guitar), Antonio “Fuzztón” Rodríguez (guitar) and Buli “Palillo Loco” Panes (drums). The Bucannan on the other hand are three masked without first name; they are simply “Mr. Rosa” on drums, “Mr. Verde” on bass and “Mr. Rojo” on guitar and howls.
The festival will conclude in Lanzarote on the 29th with a double session at La Grulla with Low Islands Refugees and The Skatoons. The Refugees are a quintet from the area of the Lower Island of Tenerife that sing about the upheaval with Afro-Brazilian, Latin and African rhythms, conglomerating sounds like reggae roots, rap, dancehall and ska, and flirting with funk, samba and afrobeat. The Skatoons are a septet, as crazy as animated and energetic, which began in 2004 in Lanzarote, with ska and reggae.
