And finally, this is the translation of the Spanish words on the image:
“The important bit is to understand that life it’s not waiting for us, it’s not going to stop, therefore neither will we.
Yellow Team Lanzarote and La Graciosa.”
Some impressive work!!! And they haven’t stopped since either… certainly some heroes don’t wear capes.
Although we do share some of their actions on our Lanzarote Musician Unite group on Facebook from time to time, we recommend you follow Emerlan on social media: Facebook page or Instagram to find out more about their actions first hand.
And as always, thank you every one that supported the cause during the concert!
