TODAY and Sunday Fuengirola’s Sohail Castle will be hosting two live music performances starting from 10pm.

After the success of the Loquillo and Revolver concerts at the castle, the historical site is set to host Diego El Cigala, accompanied by the Cali Big Band, and French pianist, Richard Clayderman.

Following the success of his last tour from 2014 and 2016 which took to him across the world to Australia, Japan, Europe and all over America, Diego el Cigala is splaying the town as part of his new 85 date European tour, launching his new music.  His historic tour, on which he is accompanied by Cuban “legend”, Omara Portuondo, serves to honour the Buena Vista Social Club.

Planning his last tour, Diego decided his next work would be a salsa project, a “unique and exciting” venture, which will be released after his current 85 date route.  His latest project sees Diego accompanied by “the most relevant musicians” of the salsa genre, including vocalists, producers and instrumentalists.

Sunday night’s event, featuring Paris-born Richard Clayderman, whose real name is Phillipe Pages, will see the French pianist serenade audiences at Sohail Castle. Clayderman, who is reportedly recognised as one of the most successful lightweight pianists on the world stage, has sold more than 70 million albums, and has received 267 gold and 70 platinum records.  The pianisthas performed at more than 600 concerts around the world and is especially known for his interpretation of Balada para Adelina(Ballad for Adeline).
