Let’s get Spanish

Speaker: Eric Vaarzon Morel en Tuna’s, DJ Kuif

Location: Gaslab

Mediterranean musical menu to delight your senses. Tonight the best flamenco guitarist in the Netherlands – Eric Vaarzon Morel, Tunas (student music groups) from the Netherlands and Spain, enjoy paella, the tropical beat of DJ Kuif, and if you like, a workshop by Eric Vaarzon Morel. Let’s go Spanish!

Tuna Ciudad de Luz can look back on a 5-year history this year. It’s what? A Tuna is a group of students who don’t just study but also make Spanish folk music. In Spain just about every university has its own Tuna group. And often several, with one for each study program. But the fact that a Dutch university like TU/e also has a Tuna group is unique. What started as a student joke showed it could grow into fully fledged and successful student association that’s now celebrating its 50th anniversary. The weekend of 19 September will see the annual Tuna festival, and of course this evening will be the perfect warm-up.

But the high spot of the evening is Eric Vaarzon Morel. The best flamenco guitarist in the Netherlands, who’s been taught by the legendary Paco Peña. Morel is the head teacher of flamenco at the conservatory in Amsterdam, and gives numerous shows from North Sea Jazz to De Wereld Draait Door.

On that afternoon Eric Vaarzon Morel also gives a workshop for which a limited number of places are available. So register quickly, and oh yes, as well as getting a lesson from this master of flamenco you’ll also be able to enjoy delicious paella!

Closing the evening is DJ Kuif, who as well as being a noted DJ also specializes in summer beat, and has even been known to turn his hand to the flamenco guitar!
