La Mercè 2017: Muchacho y Los sobrinos + Los Manolos + Ai, Ai, Ai

Time Out says

Nostalgia and rumba are on the bill at this open-air evening of music for La Mercè at Moll de la Fusta

This night of music promises to be a nostalgic one for Barcelona natives, with a performance from the mythical band Los Manolos, who were behind the official soundtrack of the Olympic Games held here in 1992, which included the mega-popular 'Amigos para siempre' (1.30am). There is a clear rumba theme in the programme of these al fresco concerts which also feature Ai Ai Ai (11.45pm), a group that was actually created in the year of the Games and are celebrating 25 years of their Catalan rumba sounds, as well as Muchacho y Los Sobrinos (10pm), the descendents of the local rumba tradition that includes such maestros as Peret, El Pescaílla and Chipén.
