New awards for the Spanish music in Lithunia
Last Monday, December 3, the Kaunas Arena hosted the Final Gala of the 18th edition of the Kaunas Talent Festival. A great space for a great musical event. 80 participants from 24 countries that exhibited their excellent musical level. This important meeting was filmed on national TV and will be broadcasted in the near future. The Spanish representative, Yanuaria Carito (Januaria), won the Second Prize and also the “Best Interpretation” award, in the “In Memoriam” category. Last month she was also awarded at the Universong – International Song Festival of the Canary Islands, with the “Silver Tabaiba” and in August she won the First Prize in the “Live your voice” contest, organized by Rec Xamaleon for Biosfera TV and Tindaya TV.
The ten degrees below zero outside the Kaunas Arena (home of the Zalgiris Kaunas) were compensated with the heat and strength on the stage of the Canarian representative, who stood out for his great voice and personality and interpretative character.
Four days full of international music in which new collaborations have emerged. Januaria has been accompanied by the Canarian composer and producer Guillermo Albelo, president of Orfeum – Organization of European Music Festivals, who was part of the International Jury of this great musical event that takes place every year in the city of Kaunas (Lithuania). Once again, the Spanish representation has fulfilled its expectations and has returned to its land with new recognitions for our music.
Several meetings of ALFA Alliance of Festivals and Artists members were also held for the preparation of new projects.
Participation made through “Eurosingers – Canarias Canta en Europa”, External Projection Program, with the collaboration of Canarias Crea, AIE, Biosfera TV and Rec Kamaleón.
