The programme Tenerife Artes Escénicas y Música Profesional [Tenerife Performing Arts and Professional Music], fostered by the Island Cabildo and different town councils, and publicly and privately-owned venues across the Island, is offering on Wednesday [15 August], the concert Timples y otras pequeñas guitarras de mundo [Timples and other small guitars of the world] at 9 pm.

Germán López, Althay Pérez, Yone Rodríguez, and Beselch Rodríguez are some of the most outstanding timple performers of the new generation. On this occasion, they get together to show the timple and its relation to other similar instruments in the world. So, Timples y otras pequeñas guitarras de mundo also includes the ukulele, the cavaquinho, the charango, and the cuatro.

The four timple players will offer a repertoire of the major themes that best represent the place of origin of the different instruments. The concert is thus divided in the geographical areas of each instrument: Hawaii, Portugal, Brazil, the Andes countries, Venezuela, and the Canary Islands. They will play a maximum of four pieces from each area.

Tenerife Artes Escénicas is a professional programme for the performing arts and music by Cabildo de Tenerife, and it is part of the Tenerife 2030 strategy, which aims to develop coordination, administrative, economic and technical strategies to offer a quality artistic programme. This initiative has promoted more than 170 shows in 2018.
