Òrbita Jazz

Summer jazz at the Catalan History Museum

On Wednesday evenings in July and August you can enjoy jazz concerts in styles ranging from swing to tango on the building's terrace area

 

Terraces are in fashion right now, offering as they do the perfect place to spend summer evenings in the open air enjoying the breeze coming from the sea. And among all the terraces in Barcelona, there's one that is making an especially irresistible offer in July and August. We're talking about the Museum of the History of Catalonia, which is set on the quay in the old port area. Every Wednesday until August 9th the museum's outside terrace will be hosting Òrbita Jazz, a cycle that offers an eclectic mix of jazz sounds.

The concerts are scheduled to begin at ten o'clock in the evening, but admission also includes a visit to the museum, starting at 8:30 pm and accompanied by a guide. Once the visit is over, it's time to sit down and kick back with a drink and listen to bands like the Guido di Blasi New Tango Project (12 July) with their fusion of jazz and Argentine tango, and the Luna Cohen Group (19 July), offering all the freshness of Brazilian rhythms. Three more concerts are scheduled: the last one in July, on the 26th, will feature Load, an electronic jazz formation, while the two concerts planned for August will feature Valentí Moya & the Joan Pau Cumellas Trio (2 August), playing jazz with French flair and a fusion between pop and jazz played by Judit Neddermann on 9 August.

The price of the ticket also includes a drink. You'll find more information on the website of the History Museum of Catalonia, where you can also book your tickets.
