The proclamation of the local singer Fran Terrén today raised the curtain on the Fuengirola Fair 2022 in honor of the Virgen del Rosario. After it, the opening ceremony of the festivities and lighting of the artistic lighting was held outside the Palacio de la Paz by the mayor Ana Mula and the municipal authorities.
Sensitivity, taste, art… these are words that define the town crier of the 2022 Rosario Fair, Francisco Terrén Alarcón (Fuengirola, 1981), better known as Fran Terrén. Fuengirolan from the neighborhood of San Cayetano, since he was very young he has confessed, on several occasions, to maintain a very special relationship with music and art, as well as a great weakness for the emotions that these manifestations generate in him.
So, always glued to a guitar, Terrén began to drink from great wonders of music, to compose his first songs and let loose on the stages of local celebrations alone, at just fourteen years old, and with the help of great friends with whom he formed groups that are in the memory of many people from Fuengirola.
In his musical production two studio albums, of which he managed to publish four ‘singles’ on music radio stations. One of these jobs became number one on Canal Fiesta Radio. In his role as creator, he has collaborated with a multitude of artists on the music scene, being co-author of songs like ‘I no longer feel anything’, by Pastora Soler, or ‘Secretos a voz’, by Malú.
Parallel to his musical career, Terrén is a municipal technician in the Youth Area of the Marbella City Council, a town to which, naturally, he also feels very close. However, it is in Fuengirola where he not only feels at home, but where he truly enjoys life with his family and friends forever.
For this reason, Terrén today offered a proclamation of intense emotions; of personal experiences intermingled with musical notes; but, above all, of affection for the city where he was born and raised.
