2 Responses to “Merida Events: Music Fills the Air!”

  1. Thank you so much for doing this fantastic service, Very good info, I can plan what events to attend when I go back to Merida. And many of them are free, that is even better.
    Cesar Cervera. (From Hollywood California)

  2. Cesar – I love writing this page… and do tend to get carried away with my event descriptions this time of year – but this is the time when the best of the best – world famous – couldn’t find better if you tried – artists are performing in Merida… almost every performance is a “must see” in the weeks leading up to summer break. Do try to see as many as you can.
