The life of a rock and roller isn’t all sex and drugs and a nice cup of tea and biscuits. There are some groups that still believe that music can change the world and there’s nothing wrong with peace, love and understanding.
Eight young Valencian musicians who go by the name of ‘Rock’N Wolves’ combine their musical exploits with co-operation in emerging countries such as Rwanda and Kenya.
The group, which was founded in 2010, has used funds generated by its concerts in Valencia and Madrid, to help the Rwandan region of Kiziguro create a source of fresh drinking water so that the local children would no longer have to walk four kilometres to the nearest well to bring back as much as 25 litres of water for their families.
The ‘Fundación Concordia’ has been the organisation through which the group’s funds have brought about this achievement, as well as the Valencian organisation Agua Pura, based in Pobla de Farnals to the north of Valencia.
Another project successfully carried out was the raising of funds that enabled 185 hens to be delivered, and from tiny eggs mighty chickens have grown and expanded the menu in Kiziguro.
The group is also working on a project to help to bring water to the thirsty populace of Turkana in Kenya, where five wells will be dug thanks to the collaboration of Rock’N Wolves with Agua Pura.
The group is starting to internationalise and will be performing in Limerick, Republic of Eire in the near future.
Rock’N Wolves are Diego Cebrián drums, Manuel Mañes piano, Adrián Marín guitar, Álex Martín bass, Paula Muñoz flute and vocals, Rebeca Querol singer, María Sánchez violin and vocals and María Valero piano.
