Last Pitch at the Old Market!

Last Chance to get your Saturday Morning Stroll on as ‘ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT VELL’ packs up its pitch for another year.

 

ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT VELL
Saturday, 14th April , from 11am – 4pm

The Old Market Place & Plaza Sa Drassaneta, La Marina

Ibiza

 

Our lovely cycle of Spring events “Els Dissabtes al Mercat Vell”, comes to an end this Saturday 14th April in La Marina, Ibiza. This year’s programme of events, which we’ve celebrated over the course of the last three months, has been more diverse than ever, especially spreading its love to Plaza Sa Drassaneta- one minute away from the central old market square..

We consider it an honour to do such an event on such a world heritage event..

Els Dissabtes, now in its 5th year,  is considered a key local activity for the general public in the town during the island’s low season and is a project funded by the Town Hall of Ibiza and organised by FIX Ibiza.

 

LIVE FOR THE GRAN FINALE!

La Mati & Friends.

(You just don’t know lucky you are if you catch this one live. Even we can’t believe our luck, if I’m honest with you…)

La Mati , born in Ibiza in 1980 to a family of musicians, is The Most International Flamenco voice to come from this  island. Apart from her recordings with Jose Padilla- the creator of Flamenco Chill alongside Paco Fernandez, she has also performed with Ojos de Brujo and Rafael Amargo as well as in internationally recognised festivals such as Zeitgeist. Right now, La Mati forms part of the Joaquin Cortes dance company and is currently on international tour with the same

She is also presently collaborating on’ Entretiempos’ a live show straight from the heart of famous flamenco dancer Sonia Olla’s soul. The Ibicenca beauty has also just recorded a new track on the upcoming  album from Jorge Pardo. She is Musical Director of Ibiza flamenco Assocation, Lailo Lolaio, courtesy of which we’ll see her and her accompanying musicians in another very exclusive musical opportunity right here in Ibiza.

 

EL MercART

 

This year’s addition to the ever growing Dissabte plan. Taking Plaza Sa Drassaneta literally as our canvas, we invited artists from the island and abroad, well known and underground, to come show their work as part of the Dissabte programming. Between the four dates completed, we have been over the moon to be able to showcase the talents of :

Bo Woody Winter (Holanda), Jesús de Miguel (Ibiza), Diego Picabea (Uruguay), Laia Domingo (Barcelona), La Skimal (Ibiza), Marta Torrasa (Francia), Joleen Eide-Johansen (Noruega/ Escocia), AuFeGar (Asturias), Omar Gallizia (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), Miguel Pardo Villangomez(Ibiza)Lou Bisú (Badajoz), Arantxa Álvarez (Madrid) o Milena Mitrovich (Serbia) and Boke&Luchy (Ibiza).

Musically, in the (hip to be )Square, we’ve fixed up some of our infamous exclusive performances over the last few weeks with live and directs from The Mrs P Project & Boa as well as Fukushima New Clear Sound Makina (Osaka), and for this CLOSING EDITION, we’re pleased to present budding star Daisy Veale as well as the man back behind the ironing board DJ decks, our MercART resident Selector No Roots.

Big Huge Thanks! 

A mention should most definitely also be given to the acts and artists of the past weeks- we’ve been delighted with up- close concerts right there in the Market Square from PETER COLOURS, CALYPSO STEELBAND and SWING & DREAMS..

 

And such a  special thanks has got to be given to the Ajuntament d’Eivissa for their confidence in us, to Sa Drassaneta for its lovely sunny space, to the press and media for  putting it out there, to Es Juvert and Mercat Vell stallholders and of course, to everybody who spreads the Word and all those who came.

And not forgetting El Mercat Nou’s introduction to the FIX formula, we thank the students and staff of El Conservatori de Musica i Dansa d’Eivissa as well as Acrobati-k for their brilliant stilt-legged, crazy-costumed and hilarious funny animation ….To the residents, residents/market trader associations for allowing us to take over their turf temporarily!
