At Mediterranea Hamburguesas sl, quality is our trademark and what sets us apart. We choose to work with the best materials, with a freshness and distinctive quality too. We enhance each burger with touches of the Mediterranean. Our daily challenge is to be the best burger bar in Valencia. Our meat comes from Valles de Esla in the province of Leon. The mostly mountain-bred animals are raised in semi-liberty, protecting the cattle and the environment. They feed on natural milk, vegetables & natural forages. Due to this healthy diet, their fats are heart-healthy. Our butchers get the best cuts and we take care to mince the meat daily, to preserve all its quality in addition to its unique flavour. All our vegetables are selected daily from the market to ensure freshness. Our bread is made the traditional way, wood oven baked with 100% natural ingredients. You can choose from Mediterranean, American poppy seed, coca or gluten-free bread. Or potatoes are fresh and homemade daily, fried in 100% vegetable oil, which is eco-friendly and government approved. Delicious and healthy at the same time! Our burgers are cooked in the moment, so you can enjoy the fresh flavour. We are not a slow burger bar but we are not fast food either. We have a menu with 15 burgers as well as sandwiches, salads and starters. All with most original and tasty recipes that make our burger the best in the city. If you have coeliac disease, we have many gluten-free options for you. We are now based in the centre of Valencia and also in the heart of Ruzafa.

Papa Luna

Peñíscola - City in the Sea On the Costa del Azahar, the ‘Orange Blossom Coast’ in the north of the Valencia Region between Castellón and the Ebro, you’ll find the seaside town of Peñíscola. A Spanish coastal town much like any other, built around the remnants of a quaint old fishing village with its five kilometres of beaches, its EU blue flag, its ‘international’ pizza, paella, pasta or pork chops restaurants, crazy golf courses and night spots. But this isn’t just any old seaside resort. What sets Peñíscola apart is its spectacular, steep-walled old town and imposing medieval castle, which jut out from the mainland forming a rocky peninsular. This is ‘the City in the Sea’, surrounded by the Mediterranean on three sides and connected to its modern-day ‘seven nights half-board, happy hour and beach aerobics’ self by just a narrow strip of land. Hannibal and King Jaime I stayed here, it was a home of Templar Knights and a Pope, a place where saints were martyred, the backdrop for an epic Hollywood movie and not a bad place to go for a springtime trip up the coast. Peñíscola has been inhabited over the centuries by Phoenicians, Greeks,

Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims and Christians, each attracted by the natural fortress formed by this rocky headland. It was here well over 2,000 years ago that Hannibal made a sworn oath of hatred towards Rome to his father Hamilcar Barca, the man who gave his name to Barcelona. Some years later, Hannibal packed his trunk and an army of his fellow Carthaginians and went off to sack the Eternal City. The Muslim rulers of Valencia had a garrison fortress at Peñíscola for three centuries until it was eventually captured by Christian King Jaime I. He ceded the town to the enigmatic Order of the Knights Templar who built the castle and citadel, which can be seen today, in the style of the architecture they had seen during the Crusades in the Holy Land. The mysterious Templars got a bit too powerful for their own good and fell from grace after the final defeat of the Crusades – they were accused of heresy and many of them were burnt at the stake. There is a permanent Knights Templar exhibition in the castle. Peñíscola then fell into the hands of

the Vatican and could have remained so, as a sort of pontific version of Gibraltar without the monkeys and the nuclear submarines, had Alfonso V not swapped it back for some lands in the Kingdom of Naples. But the name which is most associated with Peñíscola is that of Pedro de Luna, an Aragonese nobleman who was made Pope Benedict XIII or ‘Papa Luna’ in Avignon in 1394. You might think the two Popes we have now is a bit excessive, but, because of the Great Schism in the Western Catholic church, between 1409 and 1417 there were three men claiming to be Pope… one in Rome, Papa Luna in Avignon and a third Pope who had been elected to replace the other two in an attempt to solve the problem. When an agreement was finally reached and a fourth man was elected and recognised as Pope, Papa Luna refused to accept this and moved back to Aragon to the castle of Peñíscola (presumably thinking, “That’ll show them!”) where he lived until he was 95, still considering himself Pope and making papal Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

statements and maintaining a council of ‘cardinals’ while being largely ignored by the outside world. This forgotten (and some might say rather deluded) man left his mark. All squashed into the somewhat less than Vatican-sized castle of Peñíscola you can find the grandly named Hall of the Conclave, the basilica of the Virgin Mary and the Magi and the pontific halls. That wasn’t the end of it for Peñíscola; Hollywood was to leave its own legacy. The old castle was restored and ramparts looking out to sea were built for Anthony Mann’s 1960 film “El Cid”. Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren strolled around Peñíscola’s Patio de Armas and looked out over the fake ramparts as the town played the part of the city of Valencia, which was already becoming too built up and was also considered to be “too far from the sea” to play itself. The local council rather liked the look of Mann’s ramparts and there they remain. Peñíscola’s connection with the cinema continues with the annual comedy film festival, which attracts both national and

foreign actors and directors. The town has a special connection with comedy, as it was the location of Luis Berlanga’s classic comedy “Calabuch”.

Sophia Loren

The castle has influenced this seaside town as much as the town itself and its tourists have influenced the castle. Consequently you’ll find that nearly every house in the old town’s ancient, sinuous, winding streets, with wonderful names like “Desafío” (challenge), “Olvido” (oblivion) and “Suspiro” (sigh), seems to be either a restaurant or a souvenir shop. But that, you might say, is part of its charm, and if you want to combine a bit of history with your sun, sea and sangria, Peñiscola is well worth a visit.

ANTONIO JOSÉ IGLESIAS of DWOMO Tell us something about background and experiences.


Lately, I’ve been working with music in different ways and from different artistic points of view by composing, playing live, recording, producing, doing DJ sessions, organizing events, researching into music, new tendencies and improvisation. Different styles and different languages. Experimental, pop, free song and Jamaican music are my battlefields today as well as looking into ways of self-financing projects. I have Dwomo, my music laboratory band, and we are just about to release a new album. My other projects include Le Grand Miércoles (Jamaican and surf music and related styles in an instrumental, experimental vein). I’m also collaborating with Gilbertástico, the great pianist and singer-songwriter. Recently, I’ve been helping to create events and shaking the music scene up in the name of self-management. Not limiting myself to the office is a way of

extending the work of a group and of creating more activities on the streets and developing a live music circuit. I’m preparing the second edition of the Pànic Escènic cycle, a series of concerts in the El Carme Teatre in the centro histórico of Valencia, which invites bands to combine theatre elements and projections with their live performances. I’m bringing some very varied bands along from outside the city, so it will serve as a bridge between bands in Madrid and Valencia and that should help make the whole ‘music in movement’ scene more fluid. I’m also interested in getting things moving, that the cocktail shaker gets shaken. If this antidote conquers the virus of anaesthesia, it’s good for all of us. It’s time to pay more attention to things and be more chameleon-like, too… in a good way! Who are Dwomo and could you tell us about your new album that covers songs by Valencia artists? Dwomo are a duo from Madrid who landed in Valencia six years ago by spaceship. We’re a melting pot of retrofuturist and anti-scene afterpunk. We are a Cosmic Cocktail band. Our mission includes electric and unplugged shows, electro operettas for kids, DJ sessions, broadcasts and sewing seeds in different projects. We’re always searching and open to proposals. You can find more info about our albums on our web page Our new album, Electroshock Taronger, is a tribute to a number of Valencia artists, recorded and edited for Hall of Fame Records by Luis G (Caballero Reynaldo), the co-producer and fellow engineer. It covers songs by bands of today and yesteryear from the Valencia area. It’s 10 songs by very different groups from

very different periods but are now flying in the same UFO from our timeless Cosmic Cocktail point of view. The dark sounds of Amor Sucio and the icily romantic, atmospheric vibe of Julio Bustamente sung in French. The freak ’n’ roll of the ever-interesting Fela Borbone and a dark European ballad in electro-bolero style of the popular light music singer Francisco, sung in Italian this time. Check out the happy pop / surf-disco version of a legendary Esgrima song and an electrofunk version of an RC Druids track. This album has a rainbow of colours but a common Dwomo trademark sound, which is all part of the challenge. Let’s all enjoy this salute and homage to great Valencia bands! How do you find Valencia as a place for music and why is the scene flourishing? Valencia is a sweet victim of the weather in a good and bad sense. But with people opening live circuits and shaking the shaker, pop bands and electronic pioneers and more are exploring the city’s creative tradition…it’s getting more varied. The times we are living in are firing the imagination up and it all keeps the fire burning. A city is (or must be) a garden for new ideas to flourish and not only a place for conjuring up tricks to survive the crisis. The adaptation of new places and events to play live music include alternative art galleries, tabernas, matinee concerts, music for children, organizing music cycles and live concerts in private homes with large rooms or an ample terrace. It also corresponds with more bands playing unplugged, acoustically or semi-acoustically, experimenting with other forms not just to survive but also for cultural interest. All of this takes the pulse of Valencia and tests the reaction of a city to these activities. What are we missing? Everyone knows the crisis is here and, of course, it conditions things but it’s starting to become an easy excuse to attack the ethical as an extension of the economic situation. You can’t blame everything on the crisis and let everything sink rather than channel it into being a catalyst for change for the better. It’s more difficult to sleep when you’re in motion and a long siesta is a double-edged sword, anyway. Valencia is a Mediterranean friend…in a good way. Thanks and cheers!

Refugio’s sardines and caramelized tomatoes with pizza base By Helen Westwater La Ola Fresca Time to shake your tail feather, Spring is here! And this month we take a surprise outing to the Carmen, to Refugio Restaurant run by Rocío and Paco, where I’m to be found whenever the opportunity arises. Refugio is full of character and characters and, most importantly, stunning food. And so, while others chill in less hospitable parts of the world, with kind permission of Rocío from Refugio we are stealing one of my favourites from them; a Spring, almost Summery recipe, Sardines and caramelized tomatoes with pizza base. Warning! If you are like me and tend to jump into recipes and read it as you go along, STOP!!! The sardines will need to macerate for at least 1 hour and will keep for at least 5 days. Also, if you are making your own pizza base it will need to prove. So, in other words, start this recipe the day before you have invited all your friends around to enjoy it. The tomatoes also can be made well ahead of time and keep well (so good to make in large quantities) and are great for chucking in salads or topped with goat’s cheese. The plan of action is first to macerate the sardines and then, if making your own, start the pizza dough and, while that is happening, caramelize the tomatoes. Step One: Sardines Buy fresh, shiny-eyed sardines. Depending on their size, you will need one or two per person. Ask your fishmonger to remove the heads and spine. Mackerel also works well in this recipe and if you have any non-fish eating friends, replace the fish with goat’s cheese. Wash the sardines, being careful to descale them very thoroughly. Put them in a wide

for a book on this same day. By this time your pizza dough should have doubled in size. Knock it back and roll out, cut into rectangular shapes and place to rest on baking trays (lightly brushed with olive oil). Prick all over with a fork. Bake in oven preheated at 180C for about 10 minutes.

shallow dish so that they can all be covered equally and mix 5 parts of light olive oil (do not use extra virgin as it will overpower the flavour of the fish) to 1 part of dark soya sauce. Add a few thin slices of fresh ginger, mix and pour over the fish. Leave to macerate.

Finally, place the caramelized tomatoes on top of your freshly baked pizza followed by the finely chopped red onion, then crown with the macerated sardines and pop back into the oven for another couple of minutes. Serve with rocket or green salad.

Step Two:

¡Que aproveche!

Pizza Ingredients Pizza base (you can buy ready-made or make your own as follows): 1 kg white bread flour or Tipo '00' flour, or 800 gm strong white bread flour or Tipo '00' flour, plus 200 gm finely ground semolina flour 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 2 x 7 gm dried yeast sachets 1 tablespoon golden caster sugar 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 650 ml lukewarm water

La Ola Fresca C/ Músico Magenti, 11 bajo (Benimaclet) Tel: 96 114 62 99, 610 026 305

Mix up ingredients and knead for 10 minutes or so until mixture is smooth and soft. Leave to prove for at least an hour and the dough has doubled in size. Meanwhile, start to caramelize the tomatoes.

Saturday 6th 13.30h: Concert with El Papado Unplugged

Step Three: Caramelized tomatoes 3 large cans whole tinned tomatoes 840 gm (total) 1 glass olive oil 150 gm brown cane sugar 1 pinch salt Garnish 1 raw finely chopped red onion Separate the tomatoes from the juice and then remove the tomato seeds, trying to keep them as intact as possible. Place the whole tomatoes, oil and sugar into a saucepan and cook on a low heat for about half an hour. The 23rd of April is St George’s Day. What we want is for the colour of these tomatoes to end up a deep red, akin to a St George’s Day rose which, coincidentally, in some parts of Spain you should give to your loved one in return

TINTOFINO ULTRAMARINO The last time we met…Valencia was on the brink of Las Fallas and I had to fight my way against a sea of people trying to leave the city after a mascletà to get to the restaurant! This month’s restaurant came up for me to review during the main days of the fiesta, so we had to wait for a suitable day to visit, one when there wasn’t a heaving queue of diners waiting for tables at this or any of the city’s other restaurants. And so we waited, Thursday? No, fully booked, Friday? Same! Saturday then? No way! Monday or Tuesday? No, but Wednesday we can fit you in at 21.00h. Table for two? Perfect! See you then. Tintofino is a bar, a deli and a restaurant all rolled in to one. It specialises in fine wines, as the name suggests, tapas, cheeses and fiambres (cold meats and sausages) from both Spain and Italy and piadinas and pasta dishes. Its tag-line is Ahorra agua, bebe vino (Save water, drink wine). It is an attractive, double-fronted restaurant (the two fronts actually are separated by a front door to flats above in the centre) on C/ Corregeria, a small street behind Plaza Dr Collado. I particularly like this street because it is also home to one of my favourite wine shops, but I digress… the left-hand side is the entrance, while the right side offers a view through to the back and the kitchens and the ‘60s-hip-shades-of-orange wallpaper on the back wall. This right side has a long bar with stools facing out into the street and on warm nights, the window is open to the elements. We arrived unfashionably on time to find the place heaving with diners and drinkers and were shown to our table, which turned out to be two stools at a high long table at right angles

to the window bar – joining eight Italian diners already seated. We had a chance to take in the bustling atmosphere and enjoy the ambience of the place, and also to watch plates come by and see what we might expect ourselves. We were given a Fuenteseca Bobal Cabarnet Sauvignon (Utiel-Requena), robust, fruity and fragrant, and at 3€ a glass, very good value. The kitchen is at the centre / back of the restaurant separated by a glass, deli-style counter holding the cold cuts and cheeses and it is always nice to watch food being prepared so openly. And so our food began to arrive, beginning with a wooden dish of wafer-thin mortadella (one of my favourite cold meats) and a dish of dried tomatoes, olive oil, mozzarella and basil, which was crumbly and delicious with the slices of fresh warm bread. This was followed by albóndigas (meatballs), four on a long thin dish, also great with that bread. Our main course was Parmigiana de berenjena, the classic Italian oven-baked aubergine, tomato and cheese dish, perfectly cooked. We couldn’t resist the Bufalina, beefy Valencian tomato slices with buffalo mozzarella and basil swimming in olive oil to finish, we’d seen it go by to other tables all evening and just had to have some. Not quite the end though, a huge wedge of home-made Tarta de queso (cheesecake) was bought to the table and was quite delicious. As it was Wednesday, there was live acoustic guitar from 22.00h, which added to the very pleasant ambience of this extremely pleasant, well-priced venue in the heart of the Carmen. Pigi, our Italian host, is a friendly character, too. You’ll need to book…it’s that popular! Just a pleasant couple of minutes’ walk from the Cathedral.

Sarao Taberna Andaluza ‘Sarao’ is a unique term in Spanish that roughly translates as an evening meeting point for musicians and dancers in a sometimes boisterous and informal setting. ‘Soirée’ just sounds too respectable to us for a friendly flamenco taberna! This was the fifth time we’ve enjoyed some quality time at El Sarao and it’s only been open since December 2012. Since then, it has already deservedly become a fixture of the Ruzafa tapas & music scene. Above the bar, you can find their wide range of tapas written in chalk on a blackboard high above the bar. Be sure to refer to it, as they currently do not have cartas / menus to hand, though the six-person staff have always been friendly and helpful when we have asked about their choices and prices, either at lunchtime or in the evening. This is as Spanish as it gets in terms of food, drink and music. Every Saturday from 20.00h there is an informal jam with guitars, singing and sometime cajón percussion and every Sunday has live flamenco from 13.00h to accompany your Sunday paella. Indeed, the last domingo we went, we enjoyed a passionate live set by Andalusia born-and-bred, dreadlocked singer Patricia, accompanied by a fine flamenco guitarist as we tucked into a ración each of tasty paella marisco and a glass of Dama Juana, a young Valencian red wine that does the job. The first Sunday we went along, we chilled out on their ample terraza in the midday sun as we were served Salmorejo (a cold, tomatoey Spanish soup with garlic, olive oil and a sprinkling of ham) and tasty anchovies to go with our Alhambra beers. By the way, Alhambra is a classic Andalusian brand of beer. On a balmy spring Saturday night we had a real feast of Spanish tapas as we savoured, Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

over a few glasses of red wine, their wide range of fresh hams, meats and cheeses lovingly presented on tablas. We loved their flamenco-esque dish of ‘Huevos al Sarao’, which was eggs in a tomato sauce with olive oil, sweet peas and chorizo. The tapas were filling, varied and the service was friendly, too. The atmosphere and vibe was great with friends sharing tapas and digging the tunes… The table of musicians next to us treated to us to some classic live Spanish rumbas and popular songs including “Volando Voy” by Kiko Veneno, which got most of the taberna joining in on hand-claps and the chorus. Whenever we have been there it has been a 90% Spanish crowd, welcoming and up for a good time. It really is open to all. After our meal, one of the 24/7 Valencia team was handed over the guitar for a few songs and was readily welcomed to join in the fun on a “Rumba Valenciana”! It’s an attractive Spanish interior with flowersin-pots painted on the wall as a balcony in classic Andalusian fashion as well as a Zorrostyle hat, assorted Spanish abanicos (fans), toy parrot in a cage, a flamenco hairpiece, shawls and drinking gourds, too. The terrace is ample and the interior has a few barrels serving as tables for customers. On the wall, there’s a even a hilarious cartoon about the story of how El Sarao was conceived and all the administrative red tape and pompous officialdom the owners had to get through to get the taberna up and running! El Sarao is the España auténtica set in the hip barrio of Ruzafa, which makes the trip even more worthwhile. It’s a tolerant place in a cosmopolitan barrio. What’s great is that you can have a good time at El Sarao for just a few euros over informal tapas and a beers or you can splash out a bit more and have a right

Dreams of Europe All good things come to an end and Valencia’s European campaign finally came to a halt in Paris. The team’s performance was unquestionable, Valverde’s reluctance to really go for the all-important second goal was. Few could have envisaged a win for the blanc i negres especially with the significant absences of Rami and Ricardo Costa, but the visitors were the stronger team throughout the 90 minutes. They took a deserved lead in the 55th minute, through an exquisite strike from the Jonas brother, the same one that Mestalla booed only a few weeks ago. What had seemed a lost cause now became an interesting contest, PSG had never got into the game, they obviously thought they could coast through the tie, but Valencia pressed on for another.

Just as it appeared that a miracle could happen, Parejo gifted possession for the umpteenth time and one-time Valencia target Kévin Gameiro, set up Lavezzi to break Valencian hearts. Even then another goal from the Chés would have meant extra time but the Valencian manager, Valverde was slow to throw on super sub Nelson Valdez. The match finished in a 1-1 draw, which meant that VCF could now concentrate on the league!!! Their next opponents were Athletic Bilbao; normally a bit of a bogey team for Valencia, this time was no exception. Never have Valverde’s team had so many chances to win a match and ended up losing. Everyone was guilty of missing gilt-edged chances to take all three points, none more so than Roberto Soldado. The normally dependable forward missed several opportunities, but he was not alone, Feghouli, Piatti and even Parejo should have got their names on the score sheet.

All it needed was a slip from Mathieu and Iker Muniain slotted home the winner for the Basques who could not believe their luck. Even the Bilbao manager, Bielsa, was still in shock after the final whistle. The worst part was yet to come, as Valencia had to face their traditional partido fallero, where normally after too many buñuelos and cheap booze, they get beaten against whoever they play. This year’s guests were Real Betis, but lo and behold, you never know what to expect from VCF. They were the superior team, taking a lead through Soldado who thankfully had left his sheriff star boots in Bilbao, when Betis went back to 10 men Valencia were on the back foot. Mathieu was lucky not to be sent off, and a late own goal and an injury time strike from Jonas (yes, him again), a 3-0 score line flattered the home team’s performance. The manager has refused to sign a new contract and, as things stand, will

probably walk away in summer. The new owners of the club, the Valencian local government, are trying to get the burden off their hands but nobody wants to take on a club that has such high debts. Upcoming fixtures away to Atlético Madrid, Espanyol and Real Sociedad, as well as home ties against Valladolid and Málaga will be decisive in Valencia’s struggle to finish in the top four, thus assuring Champions League football for next season.

Levante UD in Europa League

Levante UD also said goodbye to their European dream. In all honesty they should have beat Rubin Kazan but too many missed chances in the first leg proved too costly. Even when they travelled to Russia they still had chances to get through but it was only in added extra time that the Russians could shirk off the brave granota challenge. Sadly, in the league, their poor recent performances continue. Goals have been hard to come by lately since Obafemi Martins decided he didn’t want to play anymore, and consecutive draws against Getafe and Granada mean that the team is beginning to slide down the league after such an exhilarating start to the season. Levante have an interesting fixture list coming up. Home ties against Sevilla, Deportivo and Celta and away day returns to Real Madrid and Barcelona, casi nada!!!! Felices Pascuas

Every match is now a final!

"HARNESSING CLEAR LISTENING, ATTENTIVENESS AND BODY RESONANCE FOR FULL VOCAL EXPRESSION” Tell us something about yourself, your background, experiences and interests. Hi, my name is Jacob Helps; I was born in a village in the Cotswolds, seven miles from Cheltenham in England where I grew up. I suppose I was brought up with music in my blood. Spent a week camping with my parents on the Isle of Skye at the age of 6 months and was lulled to the “Skye Boat Song” and the “Raggle Taggle Gypsies”. My dad played the piano and still does, and when I was about 9, I listened and watched one of my parents’ friends play the guitar in our house and I decided I wanted to do the same. What attracted me? I think being heard, expression and creating happiness. I love trees, greenness, stillness, dancing, percussion and listening. The creation of music and how music flows through us when we listen. After finishing school I played as a bassist in a band for a couple of years in Rosemary’s Children and sang backing vocals to Rob Dimery’s lyrics. Favourite song from that period: “Southern Fields” on Cherry Red Records. It was at that time that I found my voice or my voice found me. A sudden change of register, of volume, of strength and wholeness, that grew out of me through one of my songs as though it had always existed. A reminder of something, some part of me, forgotten until then. How was Valencia when you first came here and how do you find it now? I first arrived in Valencia via Barcelona on 15 Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

January 1991. Slept in a pensión above the bar Café Lisboa accompanied by the book “And the Ass Saw the Angel” by Nick Cave, and woke to coffee and a croissant in a bar near the Mercado Central, only to find a newspaper with a picture of Iraq and the drawing of a mushroom cloud unfolding over Baghdad. I scanned the page in horror, trying to understand the text but found no mention of atomic or nuclear. Valencia was fascinatingly different for me at that time. Virtually no foreigners, my friend Hedia and I were probably the first Erasmus students in Valencia. It felt exotic and the Carmen, where we lived, medieval and magical, most of its buildings still standing, old and untouched by renovation. The streets, narrower and darker than now. Just four bars in C/ Alta and Plaza del Dr. Collado, full of parked cars, asphalt and no olive tree. After an enchanted seven months in Valencia, I returned to Middlesex University (Quicksilver Place, London) to finish the final year of my Fine Arts degree, only to return to Valencia at the end of August the following year. Can you tell our readers about your workshops? I give Bi-phonic and Conscious Voice workshops to both the public in general and also specific groups such as pregnant women. I was first introduced to bi-phonic or overtone singing in 2002 in a workshop with Carmen Asensio in Viveka in Av. Blasco Ibáñez. Ten people sat in two rows facing each other, pulling strange faces and singing through the vowels. By the end of the day we could hear the harmonics ring and sing out, and above them, other sounds like singing angels’ voices. Harmonics of harmonics. And then silence. A silence that you could touch. In the following two years, I participated in eight courses in Valencia, Ávila and Toledo and learnt the basis of some of the techniques

that I use today. I gave my first workshops in 2005, integrating my singing and musical knowledge and my own investigation of the singing voice that lies behind all of my work, with ideas about attention and listening that stem from the “Vedanta Advaita” meditation as taught by Sesha (Iván Oliveros), “Anatomy for the Voice” from Blandine Caláis’ workshops, and the bi-phonic singing techniques that I’d been learning. Bi-phonic singing is the art of creating two or more sounds simultaneously, the fundamental note and the harmonic sounds that resonate within it. These sounds, which are normally barely audible but that create the timbre and character of our voices, can be amplified in the palate and vocal cavities, in the bones of the cranium and the rest of the body, to create crystal clear, bright, bell-like or flutelike sounds. Harmonic singing is an ancient technique that has been used in many cultures throughout history to cure mind and body. Alfred Tomatis, M.D., found that the high frequencies of vocal harmonics facilitate neural plasticity, creating new neuronal connections, new paths of thought within the brain, as well as harmonizing the cerebral hemispheres, charging the cerebral cortex and creating balance and harmony in mind and body. People learn how to feel their voices’ resonance and use this awareness to retrieve both voice and body fluidity and ease. They then learn how to inhabit their voice and become the sound that they are singing. Overtone singing cultivates and enriches the quality and harmony of the singing and spoken voice.

DANA GYNTHER English at the American Institute, a great school with a stress-free environment, smart, fun colleagues and good students. As for writing, to do that you need time and space – a room of one’s own, as Virginia Woolf said. I have a study at home where I can shut myself off and have mornings free for writing. This year, it has been frustrating to have a book come out in the United States and be over here in Spain, unable to do many events to promote it. Luckily, Rana Books opened last year and we were able to have the book presentation there. I’ll also be signing books at their stand at this year’s Feria del Libro (book fair) in Viveros.

Dana Gynther Tell us something about your background, travels and experiences. I’m from a college town – Auburn, Alabama. Since my parents and all my friends’ parents taught at that university, I decided to cross the state and go to the rival school, the University of Alabama. While getting my BA in Political Science, I became an ardent Francophile so I moved to France as soon as I got my degree. I lived there for almost two years then went back to UA to get a Masters in French Lit. That’s when I got to know Carlos, a Valencian who had been living in Tuscaloosa – studying, playing in a band, teaching – for over a decade. After we got married, we decided to live here, in Valencia. We’ve been here about 20 years. We both love travelling and, together, have visited a lot of the U.S., Mexico and Europe. We did the Camino de Santiago in 1994, sailed from La Coruña to Amsterdam in ‘98, and lived in Costa Rica for six months in 2003. Being parents has been another big adventure. We have two daughters; Claudia is 15 and Lucia, 12. How do you find Valencia as a place to live, work and write? I think Valencia is a wonderful place to live – obviously; it has a fantastic climate, friendly people, delicious cuisine and all that. I’ve also been fortunate to teach

Tell us about your latest book, “Crossing on the Paris”. “Crossing on the Paris,” set in 1921, takes place on the transatlantic ocean liner, the Paris. I decided to write this book after translating several articles for the MuVIM catalog “Gigantes del Atlántico” (Giants of the Atlantic) for a show on ocean liners in that museum in 2007. While doing those translations, I became interested in the history, aesthetics and mechanics of those ships, which not only boasted cutting-edge design and technology, but also were microcosms of society. All different kinds of people – from immigrants to the elite – travelled on board. The novel has three main characters, three women of different ages, backgrounds and social classes. On board, they are each travelling alone in a different section of the ship: First Class, Second Class and Steerage. The narrative tells each of their stories separately – they have their own challenges and experiences on board – but they meet on the last night and, during that brief encounter (a classic moment of unlikely bonds being made while travelling), have a profound influence on one another.

years ago, I translated the website for the local historical monument Los Baños del Almirante ( http://www.banysdelalmirall. org/ ), which was a public bathhouse open for business from 1313 to 1959. Almost seven centuries! If you check out the website, you can see that it is an exhaustive account of the baths: the history and sociological aspects, the owners, the architecture, the restoration work… It took me about three months to finish and when I was done, I knew that this would be an excellent venue for a novel. I decided to do the novel in four parts, each one taking place in a different part of the baths’ (and Valencia’s) history. After finishing “Crossing on the Paris”, I went back and reworked the text and am very pleased with it. But my current publisher thinks that it isn’t “commercial enough”. So it is on the back burner for the moment and I’m working on another novel. I’m currently writing a fictionalized biography of Lee Miller, a beautiful model/muse turned photographer/war correspondent. She’s a fascinating character: she knew all the artists in Paris in the interwar period and then, in World War II, was one of the first people to enter the Dachau concentration camp after its liberation. That book is slated to come out in 2014. Then, I really want to get the “Baths” novel out! Interview by Owl

Could you tell readers something about your book “The Admiral's Baths” that you have just finished writing? Is it inspired by and related to Valencia? “The Admiral’s Baths” was actually the first novel I wrote and, again, it was inspired by a translation job. About eight Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

beach where we live in Patacona and weather really help cover any cracks in other areas, just as the weather in London works in the opposite way.

BARRY EATON Tell us something about your background and experiences and how you came to move to Valencia. I am 36 and moved to Valencia four years ago from London. I have a beautiful fiancée, Vikki, a three-year-old daughter and another child on the way. This will come as a shock to many of my friends here in Valencia, but I trained as a dancer at London Contemporary Dance School and worked within the trade until I was 29. I have also been involved in music, clubs, PR and promotion since I was at college. Following the end of my dance career, I have been involved full time in this industry. Vikki and I decided to move from London for a change of pace, weather and possibly to start a family, so we looked at cities which offered work for Vikki as a primary school teacher that ticked all our boxes. Valencia won. How do you find Valencia as a place to live and work? We love it here. The pace of the city is perfect for us at this moment. I feel Valencia has everything most other major cities have, except your choices are much fewer. For example, if underground house music nights or theatre or galleries are your thing, then there are probably three of each in Valencia, as opposed to 30 in London. The obvious things such as the Article © 2013 24/ 7 Valencia

Almost all of my work is UK-based. I run a PR company working with leisure business and I am able to conduct my business from Valencia, so long as I have a computer and phone. I return back to visit my clients every 6 – 8 weeks but people don't seem to mind where I am. I think this is a real sign of the times. Last year, I also set up a new business with a partner, ‘Bespoke Breaks’, running tailored holidays to Valencia, trying to offer products that you wouldn't find in your average guidebook. Again, the clients are UK-based but it has been great getting involved with business in Valencia. However, I will say there are a number of local businesses who really don't seem to understand what it means to broker a deal that would potentially offer them new business and income. I am definitely not going to discuss bureaucracy and red tape in Spain, as this is a whole other story. Tell us about your Comedy Club in Valencia. It has been something I have wanted to create for about 18 months, but the first night was in December 2012 as a fundraiser for our cricket team. When living in London, comedy was very much available and something I used to frequent. Aside from friends, this is one of the few things from London that I missed greatly. Due to my work, I have good contacts with comedy promoters and comedians themselves, so I looked at the cost. It seemed viable so ‘Comedy Slap!’ was born. There have been three events and six comedians flown out so far, including a rising star, Daniel Simonsen. The club, I understand, is the only English language comedy night in the

city and there will be another four or five nights over the rest of 2013, the next one around the end of April. You can follow us on Facebook for all the information here at . Could you tell readers about the new Cricket Club in Valencia? I mentioned comedy was one of the few things I missed from London… well, cricket is another. I had arranged for a London Cricket team to come to Valencia in May 2012 to play a team I was looking to set up. Following this first match and a second between the new members of our newly formed club, Levante CC, at the baseball ground in the Turia riverbed, the whole thing took a life of its own. As chairman and founder, it is easy for people to think that I have done all this, but there have been a number of key people – especially Jason Noon, David Tivey and Graham Hunt – who have driven the club forward to a point where we are now about to embark on our first season in the Spanish league and have a brand new wicket as well. We hope to welcome a number of touring teams from the UK over the year ahead as well, so there will be plenty of cricket throughout 2013 and beyond. We are always looking for new people to get involved, touring teams to visit as we offer a full package of accommodation, cricket and social, so if anyone is interested, please check out our website ( ) or e-mail . I think the key for me is that Valencia has so much to offer me and my family at this moment in our lives. Whether we will remain in the city for the rest of our lives, time will tell. Plus anything you miss, just find people who feel the same and start it up yourself! Interview by Owl

As I’ve probably mentioned many a time before, a good friend of mine maintains the theory that if you’re not in the shape you intend to be in for Summer by San Juan (June 23rd), then you may as well give up because it’s not going to happen. This is quite reassuring, considering we have at least two and a half months to really start running around like headless chickens in a panic to get that bottom toned, but also implies that one should also be avoiding those gorgeous temptations that the changing of seasons dangles in our face with a cheeky chuckle. I am, of course, referring to the al fresco living that has drawn so many of us to – and kept us in – this beachy Mediterranean coast. I once heard a crazy statistic often thrown about which claims that there are more bars per habitant in the Valencia Region than the whole of the rest of Europe collectively. For the sake of this article, I have tried to corroborate this fact with some hard evidence but all Google is offering me, and I’m talking hundreds of entries here, is that there are more bars in Tel Aviv than synagogues which, quite frankly, is no use to me at all right now (though may store said information for possible future holiday options). Back to my case in point, all the bars. Whether it be fact or fiction, it is indisputable that wherever you are in the City, a village or nearby town, you are never more than a street away from a proper Spanish bar. Bars serving cheap beer on tap (mine’ll be a clara de gaseosa, gracias), crunchy bravas, little plate of peanuts, a selection of juicy olives. For me, there is absolutely nothing better than sitting on a terrace, surrounded by people I love, enjoying

a cool beverage and watching the world go by. Some pals have just moved into a fab flat in El Carmen with an ENORMOUS terrace on the top floor, totally secluded, which is also ideal for vegging out in the sunshine. Who wants to go for a run when you could hang out there? Honestly! After Fallas is when outdoor living really comes into play. It’s like April lures everyone out of hibernation and back into civilisation, and the change in season makes April one of my favourite months of the year, for one very girlie reason indeed – the fashion, of course! I have by now come to completely and utterly loathe my coats and jackets, scarves and boots, and just want to wear light blazers, floaty skirts and sweet little dresses, and let my body breathe! Today, I noticed as I was getting ready for work that the sky looked mighty clear, the air was still as a dream, and remembered that yesterday had been a scorcher, so I decided to declare to the world that Spring was officially here by forgoing on socks with my studded loafers. And it felt glorious as I bounded down the stairs, and out onto the street! Alas, my happiness was short-lived, as Spring seemed to stick around ‘til about 11.00h, when Winter elbowed its way back in again in the form of a very chill wind which my feet did not appreciate one bit. However! I have survived the day until now without suffering frostbite to my tootsies until now, at my desk – which is in the draughtiest room in the house, in all fairness. Oh, but it is so refreshing to be sitting here in the evening and have the sun’s luscious rays still pouring in through the window, to leave work in daylight, to see my lovely daffodils peering up at the sky, bright yellows and oranges livening up my little balcony. Everything feels more positive, more full of light. It is still beyond me why we have to have daylight savings in the middle of a Saturday night, but I suppose one hour less of drinking is hardly going to damage my liver in the long run, and it is small sacrifice for these lovely light evenings.

Boys’ fashion is also considerably better in Spring. I am a complete sucker for a glimpse of a toned male ankle with rolled up jeans and loafers, or the subtle hint of a ripped six-pack or muscly shoulders under a thin T-shirt and, as Easter passes by, you realise just who has a sneaky little bolt-hole down the coast by the beach by the bronzed faces appearing back at their desks and out and about on the streets after the holidays. Which is when I start to stand out even more, with my pale freckled skin which refuses to tan until at least midAugust (try and spot me on the beach, it’s practically impossible. If I wasn’t wearing my standard black bikini and sprawled out on a huge green beach towel I would blend right in with the sand, I swear). I’ve read every beauty article in every women’s magazine on being an alluring, chalk-skinned English Rose, how the Chinese whiten themselves up as it is a sign of wealth, and am fully aware that it is not safe by any means to end up looking like a leather sofa all year round, but when it comes down to it, we all know that almost everybody looks better when sun-kissed. I can certainly hear my mother and my grandmother and all my aunties in the back of my head – why don’t you sit outside, dear? Get a little colour to your cheeks? And we all know Mummy knows best. So thankful I am to the great invention of fake tan and bronzer until I can put in the hours required to get the slightest hint of a tan. Mind you, it won’t stop me working on it on my weekends and evenings as I enjoy a natter and some calamares at my favourite tapas bar, in the sun, with my friends, and wearing no socks.

SAX ON THE BEACH Sax /ˈsaks / noun – a musical instrument that has a curved metal tube and that is played by blowing into a mouthpiece and pressing keys with your fingers Beach /ˈbi:tʃ / noun – an area covered with sand or small rocks that is next to an ocean or lake Arguably, Merriam-Webster’s above definitions may not sound familiar to the average partygoer in Valencia whatsoever. Valencia for years was dubbed the city that was living with its back to the sea (“la ciudad que vive de espaldas al mar”). Instead, it had a firm focus towards the inside, of shady depths of dark and dingy nightclubs, which for years defined it as Spain’s party capital. In certain ways, mass entertainment, largely fuelled by one of the largest Erasmus communities anywhere in Europe and the mass consumption of whatever you can get your hands upon, dominates the scene. However, some sense of logic seems to be returning the Valencia evening and night landscape, evident in the revival of some of the Marítimo area’s music bars and smaller concert venues. I admit the average Valencia partygoer is mostly looking forward to the beach clubs and the Puerto area about to open up their terraces. Soon, the Puerto and the bars and clubs on C/ Isabel de Villena will be in full swing – the first sign of which will be the opening of Bombay (Paseo de Neptuno, s/n), an early evening open-air terrace stuck to one of the most popular and also most commercial discos, Ánimas del Puerto, if you like that sort of thing. In the meantime, the three-floor eclectic madness of La3 (C/ Padre Porta, 2) with its highly unpredictable yet vastly popular theme nights holds the hope of catching the odd appearance of an outstanding live performer in a proper nightclub. Before the real summer season hits, why not take a little tour of some of Valencia’s hidden treasures? Along those lines, we should turn our focus elsewhere, to the much-derided and threatened-foryears area of the Marítimo. El Cabanyal, especially, was for years almost a swear word for anyone looking for quality entertainment; however, paradoxically

24/7 VALENCIA some of its alleys have recently taken on a new buzzing nightlife to counteract the high-end flashy restaurants and bars catering to the new inflow of tourists and capital to the renovated Marina Real Juan Carlos I. The Marítimo area’s authenticity, despite its still run-down appearance overall, has revived some of the basics to the night-time entertainment Valencia has always had to offer and almost forgot: a combination of music with a bit of sea breeze on the side. Our quest to hear some sax on the beach cannot be complete on an empty stomach so, while we search for some spots to hear live music, grabbing a tapa or two at one of the many bars in the Marítimo area is cheap and tasty. Some personal favorites are Hermanos Barberá (Avenida de los Naranjos, 35 – 39), La Paca (C/ Rosario, 30) and El Rey de Cañas (C/ María Cuber, 50). The latter place stands out, as their restaurant offers some Galician tapas satisfying even the pickiest palette. The bar section holds special ‘Queimada’ sessions with drinks on fire, reminiscent of some ancient Galician tradition and Gaelic rituals. Once we’ve made it down to the deep alleyways of Cabanyal, we need not go too far to discover some of the hidden gems of musical offerings in Valencia today. Nehuen (C/ Cristo del Grao, 14), a vegetarian tavern, offers free reggae concerts on Thursdays with a variety of live shows on Fridays. Next door, La Peseta (C/ Cristo del Grao, s/n) has it all: a cool and welcoming crew, tapas, beers or coffee for 1€ apiece, and acoustic concerts at midday Saturday (13:30h) to give you a soundtrack to your more than worthwhile hike seaside. If you’re into making it a full weekend down Cabanyal way, you may not be able to resist the temptations of the small but rowdy El Holandés Errante bar (C/ Dr. Lluch, 9), which holds under 30 people and offers authentic Dutch meals for an energetic and up-for-it clientele of expats and locals.

27 Amigos (aka ‘Los Alemanes’, C/ Reina, 186) is soon becoming one of the most trustworthy and consistent sources of entertainment in town. Given its size, it is hard to imagine a place offering this much. Many major discotheques in Valencia would envy its fully equipped DJ cabin, where good old Technics 1200 vinyl – repeat – vinyl record players fit right in with the most modern DJ equipment for use by a rotating DJ crew bringing their best to the mix each Friday and Saturday. The real magic happens on the stage, though, with a variety of gigs on Tuesdays ranging from chanson Française, folk, blues, flamenco fusion and reggae on their April menu. However, what made ‘Los Alemanes’ somewhat the talk of town are their free Sunday evening jazz/ blues jam sessions, where the house band welcomes those skilful enough to actually join in the jam. So if you dare, join in the fun, get your sax out, and head down to the beach. You will not regret it. Mihály Sztáray

No Hay Nada Mejor que 27 Amigos

Not easily thrown off by noise, there is one place that our crew would not miss if we are to get the real deal and find some sax on the beach on our quest to satisfaction.
