open night

The Museum is offering a night-time tour of exhibitions, accompanied by live music.

On August 5, coinciding with events to celebrate Getaria’s patron saint, Saint Saviour, the Museum proposes a night tour of the exhibitions, accompanied by the live music of Arima Soul. Thanks to this initiative, the Museum becomes meeting place between different artistic languages while offering its public a somewhat different take on the building and its collections.

Arima Soul is the latest project from Mikel Makala (bass) and Lidia Insausti (vocals), with the collaboration of Paul San Martín (keyboards) and Hilario Rodeiro (drums). With obvious influences of the Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk and Jazz-Groove of the 70s, yet with an eye on the most contemporary trend of those styles, dubbed Neo Soul. For their live shows, as well as playing their own numbers, they perform covers of numerous Soul exponents including Etta James, Curtis Mayfield and Marie “Queenie” Lyons.

In summer 2020 they recorded an EP of their own numbers at Fredi Peláez’s Pottoko Studio. In early 2021 they were nominated as finalists in the “Best New Group” category of the Enlace Funk Awards 2020. And in summer 2021 they released a 7” vinyl single on the Enlace Funk magazine’s own label in Madrid, which is reaping excellent reviews.

Free entry from 21.00 to 00.00h. (last admission at 23:15). 

Free tour of exhibitions. Bar and shop open.
