MAR D’AMURA OVER CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR

##The ‘24/7 Valencia’ team have had some memorable nights of delicious dining & superb live music at ‘Mar d’Amura’ since it opened. This place has quality written all over it and attracts an appreciative crowd and is refreshingly integrated with the district. Set in the heart of the Cabanyal district, it is run by Maria de Miguel. She is a popular local of this quite dynamic & somewhat distinctive barrio of Valencia by the sea…

Maria has brought plenty of experience with her with this long-term project at ‘Mar d’Amura’ that is really broad in scope. The vision is a gastronomic and cultural space for locals and visitors. She has a dynamic team behind her; with the busy cultural programme with excellent live flamenco fusion on Sundays included and live Mediterranean music on Wednesday evenings…

THE RESTAURANT

 Dig the tasty octopus! The philosophy of the kitchen is market produce, with seasonal products used in Valencian & Mediterranean cuisine and the gastronomy of the Cabanyal. The tapas & dishes are elaborate, artistically presented and healthy and good value, considering the quality of the ingredients. Their desserts are 100% homemade. They always have options for vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free dishes too. Large groups with specialized menus are catered for if you book in advance.

LIVE MUSIC VENUE

‘Mar D’Amura’ told us more about the live music:

“The Live flamenco and sometimes fusion is every Sunday at Mar d’Amura. It was born during the presentation of the record “Mediterraníes” by Albert Sanz. A post-gig jam session started with other musicians including Roqui Albero, Javi Forner, David Gadea and Vicent Macián. Some flamenco singers, including Vicente y Juan Torres (canto), Ramón Giménez (canto) and Johnny Bizárraga joined in. They are local lads from Cabanyal, starting out in the world of flamenco. This special fusion of jazz and flamenco really took off that night and the results have been fantastic ever since.

 Keyboardist Albert Sanz & percussionist Sergio Martinez proposed that we make this a regular project and since then we have been privileged to enjoy the artistry of wonderful musicians like Perico Sambeat, Tomás de los Cariños, Juan de Pilar, Juan José Amador, Mateo Castro, Helena Feenstra, Alba Díaz, Ricardo Osorno, Eric Benavent, Chicho Leo, Dario Piccioni, Ales Cesarini, Ginés Rodríguez and more. The live flamenco sessions are from 19.30h  every Sunday. Sometimes it is pure flamenco, sometimes it is a fusion. See our Facebook page for details of each concert.”

 24/7 Valencia: Can you tell us more about your residence at ‘Mar D’Amura’? Guitarist Toni Cotoli: “Recently, I have created a project called ‘Mediterranean Guitar’ that we are presenting at ‘Mar d’Amura’ every Wednesday evening with different shows. ‘Mediterranean Guitar’ is a group of Valencian artists that encompasses different disciplines and styles, fusing our art and instruments to create original shows that range from flamenco to Classical Music to Rock. We have been working together for more than ten years. Javier Zamora (flamenco guitar), Irene de la Rosa (dancer), Gloria Aleza (cello) or Eva Dinora (voice).  See you there!”
