MUSIC WEEK IN CATALAN

On the next 2nd of February, at 20.00, the performances of the program Auditorium of Scenic Arts will start with the Music Week in Valencian Language, which brings together the concerts of Arthur Caravan, Lexu's and Verdcel. The first performance, which will take place on Tuesday the 2nd of February, will be given by the Alcoy group Arthur Caravan, a quintet composed by Pau Miquel Soler (voice, guitars), Toni Blanes (drums), Pau Aracil (bass), Jordi Richart (guitars) and Pau González (keyboards), some of them coming from the group Jalea Real. As the band explains, its style is a mixture between "Ovidi Montllor, the mediterranean flavours of Remigi Palmero and Pep Laguarda & Tapineria, the feels of Can or Velvet underground and the lyricism of the French Nouvelle Chanson".

The following day, on the 3rd of February, the Catalo-Andorran band Lexu's, with base in Tàrrega, will get on the stage. It is composed by Carles Gómez (voice), Jordi Augé (keyboards) and Albert Nadal (drums). Lexu's, a group with very awarded records on its back including "Saps, Sent amb mi" and "La vida perfecta", will present its songs in a "very elegant and meticulous acoustic format, to offer their songs from a new point of view". Lexu's, with its record Saps, got the prize for the Best Record in Catalan Language in 2004, given by the listeners of Radio 4, and with Sent amb mi they were finalists in 2006.

On the 4th of February, the band from Alcoy Verdcel, composed by Alfons Olmo (voice, acoustic guitar), Daniel Olmo (video-projections), Pau Romero (guitars and sequences), Raül Lorenzo (drums) and Darío Díaz / Climent Lanaspa (electric bass), will visit again the university Auditorium to present its last work: Petjades (Verdcel sings Raimon), where the group offers a concert with versions which are "personal and modern by the singer-songwriter of Xàtiva as "Jo vinc d'un silenci" and "Cançó d'albada", and some of the band's own songs, which will be played together with a video-projection. During the concert of Verdcel there will be a raffle of an iPod shuffle among the participants who have filled in the surveys of the performances of the Auditorium in the firs semester of the academic year 2009-2010.

Every performance will take place in the Auditorium (Paraninfo) of the UA from 20.00. Collection of invitations in the Aifos Room of the UA, Monday to Friday from 9.00 to 14.00 and Monday to Thursday from 16.00 to 19.00.
