Rocío Márquez y Bronquio, Verde Prato, Aïta Mon Amour… at Iwa Fest

Iwa Fest, the festival that will be held in Melilla between September 30 and October 5 this year, has confirmed four new names for its third edition. Aïta Mon Amour, Kawtar Sadik, Rocío Márquez and Bronquio y Verde Prato join the line-up.

These join those previously confirmed, formed by Baiuca, Lala Tamar, Imarhan or Gaya Su Akyol. Last Saturday, June 22, this edition was also presented at the Casa Arabe space in Madrid with performances by Jubantouja and Reqteq, showing the renewal of the collaboration with this institution.

In this way, the flamenco renewal of Rocío Márquez and Bronquio, the intimate Basque folk sound of Ana Arsuaga in Verde Prato, the fascination of the female performers “Chikhates” of Aïta Mon Amour and the electronic rhythms of Kawtar Sadik will add colour to the third edition of the Melilla festival.

The Iwa Fest will once again take over several spaces in the city, such as the Victoria Grande Fort, which will concentrate musical performances on October 4 and 5, 2024, or the UNED Melilla headquarters where a cultural agenda will be combined with cinema and the colloquiums as allies but that will also host live shows.
