More than 1,500 people have attended the different enclaves where the ‘Jiuuu Festival’ was held during the month of August, an event organized by the Peña Carnavalesca Los Nocheros, in collaboration with the Marbella Town Hall Festival delegation.
On August 2, the presentation took place on the Paseo Marítimo. Since that day, every Tuesday a carnival night has been held at strategic points in the city such as the Plaza de Puente Málaga, the Plaza de La Fontanilla on the Paseo Marítimo, the Alameda or the Plaza de la Iglesia de La Encarnación, which hosted On August 30, the end of the festival of this event that remembers the figure of Josemi Nieto, a member of different groups in Marbella who died this year.
The Marbella Carnival Anthology ‘Los Cañitas’ has been the headlining group of this festival, demonstrating the commitment that the Peña Carnavalesca Los Nocheros has with local groups.
Another of the star groups has been ‘Los Zorritos’, made up of members of groups from Arroyo de la Miel, Víctor García and Abraham Membrive, and from Málaga, Alejandro Saborido, who are triumphing in the Málaga carnival, and by Guille Guerrero and ‘ Nono’ Quiñones, who have been part of the Comparsa de Marbella and who have also joined projects in Malaga. Outstanding figures, with experience and know-how who, without a doubt, will mark the path of Carnival in the coming years.
The Alba Donoso Dance School has added a flamenco touch to the nights of the Festival, with a performance by the Vivencia Group, eight young promises of dance between the ages of 5 and 7 who will participate in the great European final ‘Live your dream’ after being Andalusian runners-up and Spanish champions; and the couple Limerencia, formed by Christian and Eira.
The last of these carnival nights included the performance of the chirigota from San Pedro-Estepona ‘I love you from here to Lima’, which was discovered as one of the great promises of Carnival this February, bordering on the final in Malaga.
“It has been the first edition of the many that we hope to carry out”, pointed out the president of the Peña Carnavalesca, Francis Moya, who has shown his gratitude to all “those who have seen fit to spend a pleasant little time of Carnival during this month of August”. “We have had a great acceptance, we have been delighted to see that the places where the festival has been held have been at the top and we hope that it will continue to be so for future events,” he concluded.
