On two Friday evenings this summer Plaça Masadas will host free concerts organised by the neighbourhood’s civic centre.
Jazz seems to be a pervasive presence on July evenings in Barcelona this year. In spots scattered all over town, from the rooftop terraces of iconic buildings, the courtyards of castles to select clubs, you’ll find a number of cycles that share the mission of making the hot nights of summer more bearable in the company of elegant and refreshing music. For example, if you find yourself in or near the Sagrera neighbourhood on 7 and 14 July, you’ll have the chance to enjoy two evenings of jazz in Plaça Masadas, one of the neighbourhood’s most attractive spots.
The first concert, on 7 July, is a double-bill featuring Amanda Jayne, an American singer who lives in Barcelona and plays the accordion and the piano, blending folk songs with swing arrangements, and Boozan Dukes, a band that specialises in the sounds of New Orleans and primitive jazz. The second concert, scheduled for 14 July, features Sagrera Destruction, a quintet that is willing to take on all kinds of jazz styles. As well as being the venue for these gigs, Plaça Masadas is well worth a visit in itself, being one of only three squares in Barcelona with columned porticos and a fountain in the middle, in the same style as Plaça Reial.
