The Cueva del Tesoro music festival starts this evening, Friday 7 February, at the Rincón de la Victoria cave.

Four concerts, one each weekend, will offer a selection of opera, gospel, flamenco and fusion music.

Malaga-born singer-songwriter Manu Valiana will be performing a fusion of pop, rock, funk and smooth jazz tonight. After his appearance on Spain's La Voz (The Voice) in 2018, Manu launched his first single, Echarte de menos (Missing You) and will be performing that along with his other songs.

On Saturday 15 February, the band Ortigosa will be performing in the cave, the same venue where they recorded their latest album, 'En directo' in 2019. The brothers, José Manuel (Lolo) and Emilio are Rincón de la Victoria born and bred and are well known in the Axarquía for their flamenco performances.

Gospel IT, a group of 20 talented young musicians from Malaga, will be performing gospel versions of classic rock, reggae, pop and soul on Saturday 22 February.

Closing this year's festival on Saturday 29 February will be soprano singer María de los Ángeles Castro, accompanied by the Rincón-born pianist, Salvador Vázquez.

All concerts at the Cueva del Tesoro cave (Avenida de Picasso, 21, 29730 La Cala del Moral) will start at 8pm and are free. Places are limited.
