The Andrea Motis Quartet, Ethno Catalonia and Michel Doudou NDione are among the stars of the fourth edition of this summer concert cycle.
Summer is here and it’s time for a new edition of Musics of the World, a cycle that takes place in the magnificent surroundings of the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site and aims to bring sounds from all around the world to different venues in Barcelona. The cycle is set to begin on 29 June with a concert featuring trumpet player and singer Andrea Motis, accompanied on the bass by Joan Chamorro, guitarist Josep Traver and Esteve Pi. Motis on drums in the presentation of the album Emotional Dance.
All of the performances are scheduled for a Thursday, so one week later, on 6 July, it will be time for Argentina’s Marcelo Mercadante and Juan Cuacci with their blend of tango, jazz and flamenco. On 13 July, we’ll have the chance to discover Ethno Catalonia and their project combining folk, ethnic sounds and traditional music, which is aimed at young people from 16 to 35 years of age.
The penultimate concert in the cycle will take place on 20 July with Senegal’s Michel Doudou NDione, a singer, composer, choreographer and dancer who will be bringing the rhythms of his native land to Barcelona. And finally, on 27 July, Cece Giannotti and Francesc Chaparro, the components of the group Après Minuit, will offer a musical spectacle that is a soundtrack to the long and tiring trip undertaken by thousands of people being forced to leave their homes due to armed conflicts.
All of the concerts will begin at 9pm, though the venue is open an hour earlier to allow people to visit the space. Dinner is available in the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site.
