Michael Douglas, accompanied by his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, yesterday presented the programme for this year's “Noches Mediterráneas” (Mediterranean Nights) at his Costa Nord cultural centre in Valldemossa. Douglas took centre stage along with 90-year-old Cuban singer Compay Segundo who, along with his band, will tonight kick off this summer's cycle of musical and cultural entertainment. Douglas admitted that he is a huge fan of Cuban music and would love to visit the country. However, this summer's line-up, features a wealth of different musical influences from all over the world, from Africa to New York. Compay will kick the third consecutive summer of “Noches Mediterráneas” off in style, and he will be followed by Art Garfunkel and Jimmy Webb on June 16, Lady Smith Black Mambazo on July 6, Enrique Morente on July 20, Estrellas Calle 54, featuring Bebo Valdés, Paquito d´Rivera and Chano Domínguez on July 26 and Isaac Delgado on August 3. One of the highlights is expected to be Enrique Morente and his “Africacubacaí” spectacular which, the director of Coast Nord, Paco Calatayud, explained is a mixture of African, Cuban and Flamenco music which has been specially put together for Costa Nord. The concert will be recorded for Virgin music who intend to release it on compact disc and DVD.
