The concerts at MEAM, recommended by Barcelona’s centre hotel
The establishment is the highest representation of contemporary and figurative art from Barcelona. In addition, you cannot miss its exhibitions and events, as well as their upcoming jazz and blues concerts on February 26 and March 4. What do you think about an alternative plan? Your Barcelona’s centre hotel advises you to watch out for the musical ideas we have for you and that will take place at the MEAM.
Born in Barcelona, Julie Amar will harmonize the concert with her voice, accompanied by the violin of Fanny Abela, the rhythms from the guitars of Pierre-Arnaud Bouthis and Fran Asensio, not to mention the final touch of bass thanks to Georges Picot. They are Acoustic Guiri and this Friday, February 26, they will join us in an original concert in the MEAM.
Their project is a representation of Jazz Manouche, born in France during the 30’s. Acoustic Guiri will delight us with their version of a musical style with much of swing and the cultural gypsy influences from Central Europe. This combination of instruments and various musical styles such as Jazz, Blues and Soul, has been appearing in several musical bars and in referral locations from our city. If you want to discover the hidden rhythms of the French Jazz, this Friday you have an appointment at the European Museum of Modern Art.
The Blues Prisioners
You cannot attend the 26th? We have more! If you came on the 26th or even if you did not have the opportunity, on March 4rth, Jazz comes back to MEAM. The harmonica and the guitar from Sergio Souto and Lluís Giunta, respectively, will make us dance and enjoy their passion for blues.
You may not know that the group was born in an American prison in 1980. Taking advantage of the concert of The Blues Brothers and the stir it caused in the prison in Illinois, the musicians decided to escape and devote themselves entirely to music. Today they are still in search and seizure, however, the only thing they will manage to steal is your heart, they did it with our Barcelona’s centre hotel and we are sure that they will manage to get to you in some way or another. Do not miss the opportunity of having fun with their stories, through the rhythm of the best Blues.
Did you have a plan? Our Hotel in Paseo de Gracia proposes two events that you must not miss. If you enjoy live music that expresses stories and quotidian experiences, do not doubt and come to meet Acoustic Guiri and The Blues Prisioners at the Museum of Modern Art.
