On the 15th September the last concert of “Sounds of the Dolomites” takes place in Val Canali, in a green meadow immersed in the nature, next to the Villa Welsperg, the “House” of the Natural Park Paneveggio Pale di San Martino, in Trentino. The beautiful meadow at the foot of the Pale di San Martino, the widest group of the Dolomites, will be the theater of the incredible voice of Malika Ayane, one of the most amazing pop singer in Italy. In fact, with her extraordinary voice and interpretative ability, her intelligent mix of melodies and receptivity to international sounds, there is no doubt that Malika Ayane represents one of the finest ventures in Italian music in recent years.

A great concert in an incredible frame, that’s what you will be witness of.
