Art Garfunkel will be one of the biggest attractions at the Mediterranean Nights concerts which will be held in Michael Douglas's Costa Nord cultural centre in Valldemossa this summer. The full programme was announced yesterday by Paco Calatayud, the centre's director. The programme will open on May 28 with a return appearance by the legendary 90-year-old Cuban musician Compay Segundo, whose concert last year, postponed once because of ill health, had to be held in Palma's conservatory because of bad weather. Art Garfunkel, who formed the most famous duo of the Sixties with Paul Simon, will appear at Costa Nord on June 16, with songwriter Jimmy Webb, thanks to the direct mediation of Douglas. The South African group Ladysmith Black Mambaza, who appeared on Paul Simon's Graceland album, will take the stage on July 6. July 20 will see a show, Soniquete y Son, featuring cantaor Enrique Morente, in a spectacle combining Cuban and flamenco music, and inspired in a poem by Nicolas Guillen. It is a world premier and will feature Cuban pianst Pepesito Reyes, who is 84, and La Golondrina, from Granada, who is 82, as well as other flamenco and Caribbean musicians. Jazz by Calle 54 will be on the bill on July 26 and the last concert on August 3 will feature Cuban singer Isaac Delgado, backed by 18 musicians. Tickets, available from May 7, cost from 30 to 80 euros, and the centre can seat 340.
