Jamboree shines in glory with Mas i Mas festival
Jamboree is one of those places that has become legendary in the city of Barcelona for bringing the best of jazz music to people, both locals and tourists. That half a century has been intense and enough to give a lot, and this year with its popular festival Mas i Mas could not be different.
A high-level program that focuses, in equal parts, on the great national artists and major international figures who visit the city. At the same time, it maintains the balance between the different proposals and streams, ensuring that both lovers of classic jazz and the most daring vanguards have options to choose from.
In the last two weeks of the festival, you can enjoy figures likes Marga Mbande, one of the vocalists who shines in the current scene, Carlos Sarduy, a trio whose leader is the Cuban trumpeter who has named his new work as “light” or Violetta Curry & Jaume Vilaseca Trio, paying homage to the origins of the singer in the African-American musical culture.
Also next week, the tribute cycles will be the stars of Jamboree; no more and no less than four tributes to the giants of the jazz are waiting for you. The great Henry Mancini, Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey and John Coltrane will be honored by other great artists of the genre; artists that will thrill the Jamboree audience with songs that live in our memories.
Don’t think twice, if you like good jazz Jamboree, with its fifty-five year history, is the place to enjoy this genre so emotional and that rises such admiration. The luxury hotel Omm recommends the Mas i Mas festival to brighten the nights of August in Barcelona.
