The thirteenth edition of the LA MAR DE RUIDO Festival resumes the three days of duration from Friday to Sunday, just as it began back in 2005. A poster that simplifies what the Festival is and has been in these previous 12 years, a journey for the different styles of rock, blues, pop, and roots music.
Artists who have been number 1 in the past, and who now retain the legendary label, like the English The Blow Monkeys, who swept the British charts and the rest of Europe in the 80s, and who come to Avilés on their only date in Spain, with the original band that catapulted them onto the dance floors. Also as Mikel Erentxun, founder of the historic Duncan Dhu, with thousands of records sold and hundreds of concerts behind him in Spain and South America, will be at La Mar de Ruido to play all those songs and the new ones from his recent solo album “El hombre sin sombre.” And what to say about Total sinister, more than 30 years of career on stage and after many years without playing in Avilés, they return, this time to La Mar de Ruido, to play all the greatest hits in their discography.
But this year the Festival offers other spectacular bands, completely different but that have the musical appeal of the best palates. That's how they are Red House, without a doubt the best blues band that tours the nights of Madrid, led by Jeff Espinoza and Francisco Simon, and they have in their ranks one of the best musicians that Avilés has produced in recent decades, the double bassist Dani Casielles. No less important will be the presence on Sunday, August 20, of the Young Son Classics, one of the Cuban bands of the moment, on their European tour, arrive in Avilés carrying the best Cuban son, heirs of the great groups of Cuba, they have been nominated for the Grammy Awards on several occasions.
Completing the lineup for this 13th edition of La Mar de Ruido are bands from Aviles and Asturias such as Otus Scops and Manitou; Squizo and Nacho Garcia veterans of Aviles rock, and the groups The Fever, greats of the Asturian rock scene, and Maraya Zydeco, by Michael Lee Wolfe and Maraya Zydeco, who bring us that old but energetic Louisiana sound and bursts of blues.
