Home About


Gary Beaumont has been interested in music most of his life, and has a wide and eclectic taste from classical to punk and everything in between, OK maybe excluding Mongolian throat singing!

Having spent many years in Andalucia it became evident that there was no single, English language resource providing information on the music scene in the region.

As webmaster of the Manilva Life website and later also editor of The Resident newspaper Gary has endeavoured to raise awareness of the local music scene, being spurred on by a comment by a friend of his daughter’s that Spanish music was all flamenco and Europop and firmly stuck in the 1980s.

This site is Gary Beaumont’s personal blog covering all aspects of the Andalucian music scene from his own perspective and whilst collaborative, has no direct connection to The Resident, or Manilva Life.
