Spanish Troubadour Sabina to Play in May

January 22, 2010

Legendary Spanish singer-songwriter Joaquín Sabina has confirmed a Costa Rica date in his “Vinagres y Rosas” tour, according to concert promoter Interamericana de Producciones.

Sabina is scheduled to perform with a full band on May 12 in San José, said Cecilia Chavarría, the promoter’s marketing director. However, she said Interamericana de Producciones has yet to determine a venue and ticket prices.

Fans liken the gravelly voiced singer-song-writer to a Spanish Bob Dylan. In the great troubadours’ tradition, Sabina’s poetic lyrics and the stories they tell take primary importance in his songs. His music has been celebrated in Spain and around the Spanish-speaking world for at least 30 years.

Sabina’s tour kicked off this weekend in Argentina and includes several dates in that country as well as in Chile and Uruguay, before hitting Mexico and other Latin American nations.
