Projecte Mut, Strombers and Voice & Sense hold down bill for evening of concerts

foto projecte mutToday brought the announcement of one of the main draws of the Office of Culture's Christmas 2017 programme, an evening of concerts in Sant Ferran. Performances, staged inside the festival tent at plaça de Sant Ferran, will kick into action at 10.00pm with homegrown songsmith Marí (formerly Pez Limón) opening the way for Ibiza-based heavyhitters Projecte Mut. Strombers will close out the bill with a show that promises to continue into the morning.

Local talent
Tasked with heading up the round of evening performances is hometown act Marí. In addition to receiving an education at the local school of music and the conservatory that serves the two Pitiüsa islands, Joan Marí trained as an actor in Juan Carlos Corazza school in Madrid. After playing in groups like Pez Limón in the capital and Endèmicks on Formentera, Marí cast his bid as a solo act in 2016. He is currently wrapping up production on his first album, Fénix, alongside Eivissa producer Joan Barbé (Projecte Mut, Ressonadors, Statuas d Sal...). Marí has had to cancel his performance due to a case of pharyngitis. Voice & Sense will perform in his place.

Projecte Mut
Just shy of midnight, Projecte Mut will take the stage to share with Formentera 10 Anys i Bons, a disc that celebrates the group's ten years of history through some of the their essential tracks, which include collaborations with La Pegatina, Els Catarres, Els Amics de les Arts, Gerard Quintana, Gossos, Maria del Mar Bonet, Blaumut, Quimi Portet, Cris Juanico, Cesk Freixas, Sanjosex and Miquel Gil. Now, as Projecte Mut prepares to perform before Formentera crowds, the group packs more punch than ever.

Closing out the evening's rollicking festivities, the band led by Cardona Strombers will get folks dancing with their mix of ska, Latin rhythms, reggae, rock and country. With ten years of performing under their belts and still every ounce their original youthful, partygoing attitude, Strombers are well on their way to becoming one of the strongest musical groups in the region.
