MAPAS will celebrate its last day in style with 12 musical shows from the South Atlantic this Saturday, December 18. This fourth edition has been characterized as the link between the two Canarian provinces. 2021 is the first time that MAPAS takes place in Gran Canaria.

Eight countries will meet in a final day that celebrates tricontinental music. It will take place in the Chamber and Symphony halls of the Tenerife Auditorium and will begin at 12 noon.

Toñín Corujo Quartet will be in the Symphonic hall of the Tenerife Auditorium from 12 noon. Corujo is one of the timple's most renowned composers and performers. At 12:45 pm, Tana Santana will be in the Chamber room. His music could be defined as urban although he tries to forget the stylistic limits to seek an identity that redefines jazz. Sharing Grandmothers will be in the Symphony hall from 1:00 p.m. This musical project explores the profound contributions of black women to humanity.

The afternoon session will begin at 4:45 pm with the duo of Pablo Rodríguez and Humberto Ríos. They will be in the Chamber room of the Auditorio de Tenerife with an approach to creation that ignores the barriers between musical genres. The next performance will be that of Amee Slam in the Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife at 6.15 pm with the Canarian musician Ner Suárez. Amee specializes in Slam, a genre that mixes poetry with music.

The symphony hall will host Natanael Ramos - Islander's Dilemma at 7:00 p.m. "It is the reflection of a wandering islander," explains Ramos. Dilemma is the echo of their experiences and walks through each of these places. At 7.45 pm, the guitarist Nino Costoya will be in the Chamber room. Specializing in percussed acoustic guitar, Costoya fuses different styles and schools to enhance the figure of the soloist.

Coming into the night of Saturday 18, Simbeque Project will be at 20:30 in the Symphony hall. The group develops the purest sounds of Canarian folklore fused with jazz, rock, electronics, funk or drum and bass. Argentine Axel Krygier will be the next artist. At 9:15 p.m. he will be in the chamber room where he will build and de-construct his live music through a device that takes mapping to a paroxysm.

Djely Tapa will be at 22.00 in the Symphony hall. The Canadian livens up the stage with a repertoire of songs ranging from Sahelian environments to blues and electro. Another woman, Fanie Fayar, will be the next performance in the Chamber room of the Auditorio de Tenerife. At 10:45 p.m., he will be on stage with his fusion music: a combination of folk, funk, pop and soul.

The day will be closed by MMO-Medicine Man Orchestra in the symphony hall at 11.30 pm. This project is a true sensory epic in the spiritual universe of the West African griots that brings together the percussion of Melissa Hié, the electronic music of Alissa Sylla and the incantations of the griot on stage.
