Merida Events: Trova and the Symphony

This Week… starting March 23, 2009


A quick note to remind you about the Merida Month-At-A-Glance Calendar. This calendar will be continually updated by our staff… as soon as we know about an event, we’ll put it here. The monthly calendar is color-coded, so you can see what’s going on in a Merida minute (There’s a legend at the bottom… each color designates a category of event). See something you like? Click on the event to find a description and all the details you need to participate. You can print the details of a day, or print the month-at-a-glance. Or you can email it all to a friend (or to yourself!).

A link to the calendar can ALWAYS be found at the top right of every page, as well as on the left below the photo banner on the welcome page (along with some other very important and useful information… check that little box out!).

We welcome any suggestions you might have (leave us a comment…) and hope you find this new Yucatan Living feature useful.

And now, some events we’d like to bring to your attention for this week…

Yucatan Living Annual Festival of Trova: This is the Last Week
As we all know, trova is the romantic music that is the heart of the State of Yucatan. Every year, in March, there is a month-long festival to honor not only trova itself, but its past, present, and future musicians and singers. The schedule for this festival is huge. We list only the events that we believe will interest our readers and our expat community. We do not list conferences and workshops, nor do we list the many events held in schools, shelters, and nursing homes. It is wonderful to know that the children of Yucatan are able to see the same fine performances we see, and that the music of their youth is brought to the elderly and others who might not be able to attend the performances in Centro. This is a huge undertaking and our hats are off to the organizers and to the performers who make it all happen.

Yucatan Living 15th Edition of the Tsunami: A Convention of Animates
If you feel a bit out of the loop on this one, don’t think you are alone. We had no idea how big the world of online games and the fantasy characters of anime have become. This year, foreign guests will be on hand to meet their fans. One of the visitors will be Rene Pinochet, originally of Chile, who is the voice of Transformation, a character in the series of the same name. Also on hand will be a young married couple from the U.S., Pixiekitty and Genocide Neon, both Cosplayers. See their website here.  Join them for 3 days of exhibitions, contests, Anime convention in Meridaand game matches. This will certainly be something different and will introduce Merida to an entirely new generation around the world.
Location: Convention Center, on the road to Progreso
Dates: Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29

Yucatan Living Last Yucatones for a Month
Yucatones fans… this coming Thursday (March 26) and Friday (March 27) will be your last chances to see the Yucatones FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH! See details below on Thursday and Friday.

Fiestas This Week

There is only one municipal fiesta this week, but it is in a part of our state that is a bit cooler than where most of us live, so it might make the perfect little trip to enjoy cooler weather and see something new.

Yucatan Living Cantamayec Fiesta 4 Day Event
March 25 through March 28
This is a traditional "county fair." It is located in the central part of the state, just south of Sotuta and west of Teabo. Look for geat hammocks here! Also look for the 17th century Temple of San Luis and the 18th century Temple of San Miguel Arcangel. The Ohican Archaelogical Zone is located here as well. There are a total of 11 cenotes in Cantamayec. Cholul and Hunchi Ich are suitable for diving. Kochola is suitable for swimming, observing and diving. All three have have beautiful blue water. We suspect that one could live in the State of Yucatan for a lifetime and never get to the end of a very long list of hidden treasures. This is the land of Mayan myths and legends and well worth visiting.

Yucatan Living Theater: Ya Llegó El Plomero (The Plumber Has Arrived)
At first we thought maybe some enterprising expat had finally written a play about renovating a home in Merida. But apparently not. This is a play written by Wilberth Herrera and performed by Grupo Escena Altema, directed by Jorge Chable. Don Tarsicio arrives home from work to find his household in a total uproar because of a series of ‘moral upsets’. He has already had one heart attack and strives to remain calm as one of his children is placed in handcuffs. The truth eventually comes out. Now that you know the plot, watching this play in Spanish might just be a great language lesson! (in Spanish)

Yucatan Living Trio Los Tecolotes: La Trova Nuestra in the Cultural Centers
From now on, you will often see the term "La Trova Nuestra" attached to performances.

So be on the lookout for not only "traditional trova," but "La Trova Nuestra" as well. These young people will be the stars of the future of trova in Yucatan for the next generation and beyond.
