Javier Limón, artistic director of the Mediterranean Music Institute, performed Promesas de Tierra at the Mediterranée International Festival of Music in Ashdod, Israel on June 10, 2015. He shared the stage with alumni, pianist Tal Even-Tzur and recorder player Tali Rubinstein; MMi guest artists harmonica player Antonio Serrano, flamenco singer Genara Cortés, singer Noa Ben Shushan, bass player Adan Ben Ezra, Gilad Dobrecky on percussion, and violin player Fadel Manna; and special guest singer-songwriter David Broza.

The concert featured selections from the Promesas de Tierra album with performances by the whole band, as well as a couple of tunes featuring the TalyTali duo or a duo performance by Limón and Broza. One of the concert highlights was when, as a result of amplification problems, while performing a duet with Limón, Cortés walked to the front of the stage and sang without a microphone before a packed auditorium.
