Nerja appreciated the contribution of the Argentinian community in the city.
The mayor of Nerja Jose Alberto Armijo appreciated the contribution and involvement of the Argentine community in the economic and social development of the city.
This was highlighted during the reception of Argentine singer Lorena Larrea Catterino who is on an international tour to promote the Chamame musical style, declared last year as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
The mayor, together with the advisers of Citizen Participation Javier Rodriguez and Popular Traditions Elena Galvez, welcomed the artist in the mayor’s office, accompanied by the president of the association Casa Argentina de Nerja Dario Guerrero, the vice-president Guadalupe Pantoja and by secretary Oscar Sanchez.
The mayor underlined that “we have always maintained very good relations with Casa Argentina de Nerja, with the best will to collaborate on the initiatives that have been proposed to us”.
He also underlined the role of the association as an interlocutor and main support for all Argentinian families who have emigrated to Nerja to work and develop their life in the municipality, and that the city is twinned with the city of San Juan since 1997.
Lorena Larrea Catterino will perform at 5 pm on Sunday, December 18 in Plaza de España, as part of her “Nañuva” tour, which means embrace in Guarani, coinciding with the commemoration of International Migrants Day.
The singer has announced her intention to participate in the Mercosur Chamame Festival which will be held in January in the Argentinian province of Corrientes and will be broadcast around the world.
With a professional career of more than 20 years on stage, the singer will offer a concert as the official representative of Chamame, a very popular musical rhythm in the northwest of Argentina and other countries of South America which was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) last month.
