The violinist Ara Malikian delights us with a “solo ham” in his visit to La Rioja.

The violinist Ara Malikian delights us with a “solo ham” in his visit to La Rioja.

4 November, 2015.

Ara Malikian was born into an Armenian family. He started playing the violin at a young age, together with his father. His talent was soon recognized, despite the hard circumstances of the Lebanese civil war that force him to live, and even to study in the anti-aircraft shelters, during long periods of time.

He gave his first important concert, when he was 12 and then, at the age of 14, the orchestra director Hans Herbert-Jöris heard him and got him a scholarship granted by the German Government to study at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hannover. At the age of 15, he was the youngest student to be admitted into this prestigious Centre for Musical Studies. Later he extended his studies at the London Guildhall School of Music & Drama, besides taking lessons from some of the most prestigious teachers of the world, as Franco Gulli, Ruggiero Ricci, Ivry Gitlis, Herman Krebbers or members of the Alban Berg Quartet. He is considered one of the best violin solo players of the world and he has a career full of hits and awards.

We coincided with him in his visit to La Rioja, where he came to offer one of his wonderful concerts and also one of his master classes, surrounded by boys and girls, and he was so kind to immortalize himself in this way.

We hope he is as good with cutting ham and he is with the violin!

Have you tried our “BBQ Revolution”?

Have you tried our “BBQ Revolution”?

3 November, 2015.

At Martínez Somalo, we like to innovate, always respecting tradition; therefore we have launched our “BBQ Revolution”.

A range of chorizos to be prepared on the barbecue, with the most revolutionary tastes and ingredients of the market.
Try our BBQ “Inferno”, if you are not afraid of the chili. An intense flavor. For the bravest. Our “Grill Arizona” will make you scream that “yipikayei”, pure “yankee” style. Smoky nuances, lightly hot, and with the most American barbecue flavor. With our “Curry” flavor, you will be transported to the heart of the most authentic India. Perfumed taste, intense and very pleasant. “Mediterraneo” will make you feel like in those beach days, when the only thing you want to do is to enjoy. A taste of all the aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean Basin. And with our BBQ chorizo “with wine”, you will feel like a genuine Riojano. The most traditional chorizo with an intense and perfumed wine flavor.

What are you waiting to try them?

We are starting our new journey.
