This blog is about travel, usually with a Hispanic focus, though it may wander from this remit at times.

As of 2014 I’m no longer updating this site, but you can still find me on Twitter.

    Quimantu concert at the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre 14th September 7.45pm.
    Fusing folk and classical music with Latin rhythms and modern beats, Quimantu’s enchanting and exciting global sound is created from an amazing array of over 30 instruments, traditional and contemporary from Latin America, Europe and Africa.

    One of the most versatile and accomplished world music groups in the UK, Quimantu invites you to travel in the footsteps of the Mitimaes in a truly distinctive show, sharing their knowledge and understanding through culture, songs and music. Audience participation and stunning artwork and visual materials from South America are incorporated to create a performance celebrating communities, ancient and modern and life itself.

    Hi there Jon,

    I thought you might be interested in spanish artist Lidia de Pedro’s upcoming first solo show “Motel Déjà Vu: We’ve All Seen” at artrepublic Soho from Nov. 10 to Dec. 3.

    Lidia de Pedro hails from Madrid and used to be a graphic designer. She now has a strong UK and Spanish following as an artist with two previous sell-out shows and a presence at the International Art Fair and the Affordable Art Fair. Her works contain intricate narratives painted with acrylics, watercolors, ink, glass paint and varnish.

    In an experimental fashion, “Motel Déjà Vu: We’ve All Seen” will feature a series of soundscapes that accompany each of Lidia’s 12 pieces, bestowing them with individual soundtracks.

    Singer and songwriter Katie Cruel, who used to perform with We Fell To Earth and Queens of the Stone Age and now has embarked on a solo career. will perform on the opening night.

    If you have any questions or would like to attend the private view or see some pictures of Lidia’s work, let me know.
