After a decade of playing in local and foreign stages, the national group Malpais says goodbye to its followers on November 18th in the National Stadium, where they will play themes like “Como un pajaro”, “Abril”, “Contramarea”, “El portoncito”, “Mas al norte del recuerdo” and other popular songs.
Far beyond just a concert it’s a tribute to the director, companion and composer Fidel Gamboa.
Those invited to the show to share their talent for more than two hours are: the National Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Marvin Araya, Pato Barraza, Bernardo Quesada, Humberto Vargas, Adrian Goizueta, Maria Pretiz, Arnoldo Castillo, Sonsax and other local and international artists, like the Nicaraguan Perrozompopo, who will lend their voices to fill the stadium with the work of one of the most beloved Costa Rican musicians.
The album release is another purpose of this concert because it includes new songs that even the members of the group didn’t know about.
This was affirmed by his brother Jaime Gamboa: “in this record there are some jewels that we didn’t even suspect were there, cooking slowly in the studio. Fidel always gave us that kind of surprises. But in the album there are also some songs that haven’t been recorded yet”.
The entrances cost ¢5.000 (around $10) for east and west grandstands (high zone of the stadium), ¢8.000 (around $16) for the east and west lower sections and ¢10.000 (around $20) for turf. You can buy them online at www.laboleteria.co.cr and its authorized selling points.
