On Sunday, July 27, Nicoyans closed the Annexation Cultural Festival in a great way – three Nicoyan music groups added flavor, color and rhythm to the closing festivities of six days filled with events and surprises.
At 6 p.m., the group Soulinaje played salsa, rap and bolero, bossanova, reggae and ska, singing upbeat songs with messages for youths.
At 7 p.m., the youth band Kabuya, who played Ska and Reggae to add still more flavor to the night.
At 8:30 p.m. it was time for Nicoa 37, another Nicoyan group who made an appearance and had everyone dancing – regardless of age – with their original songs, including “Recuerda” (Remember) and “No depende” ( Doesn’t Depend ). The band had a great reception from the audience, who applauded and praised their music.
Oliver Perez Picado, in charge of communication for the Municipality of Nicoya, said that, “Luckily, everything went well. The people responded with their attendance to the different events that were held, and I think they liked it.”
Perez clarified that in addition to the other bands, the group Percance had canceled some two weeks prior to the event, due to a commitment that they had with a company in Tibas. Many people were waiting for their concert in Nicoya, because they were listed on the municipality’s schedule of events.
But beyond the absence of Percance, people ended Sunday night as if the next day were not Monday.
