25th Guitar Festival Barcelona continues until 5th of july

11 Mar

The Guitar Festival of Barcelona celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and brings along one of the best musical proposals for this spring. This celebratory edition is marked by a wide range of genres, from the Spanish guitar to hard rock, with the guitar-based music as a core theme, thus appealing to a young, modern and more urban audience.

The festival showcases great acts such as the London-based indie rock band Fanfarlo, opening this edition on the 20th of February at the BARTS Theatre and the Spanish singer Rosario presenting her new album on the 5th of March at Palau de la Musica.

Other headliners include the british old-timers The Stranglers on the 1st of April, Spanish singer Luz Casal on the 20th of March and the UK-based group Crystal Fighters displaying their alternative rock, guitar-based dance music at Sant Jordi Club on the 15th of May.

Festival Mil.leni Barcelona

Each year, Barcelona enjoys the Festival del Milenio (Festival of the Millenium). This year the fifteenth edition began in November and will end on May 23. There will be a total of thirty concerts in different venues around the city. This year Van Morrison led the cartel, playing last December at the Liceu, but the festival stands out the variety of styles: flamenco has a great representation (Estrella Morente, Miguel Poveda, Tomatito and José Merce are good examples), but there is also room for pop (Lori Meyers, Delafé y las Flores Azules), and other artists such as the French minimalist Yann Tiersen, or the Balkan composer Goran Bregovic.

Concerts from March are:

  • 13/3 | 21:00h | Sisa, Portet y Oliver
  • 24/3 | 21:00h | José Mercé + José Manuel Zapata
  • 28/3 | 21:00h | Rachid Taha
  • 4/4 | 21:00 | Delafé y las Flores Azules

  • 24/4 | 21:00h | Standstill

  • 25/4 | 21:00h | Roger Mas
  • 29/4 | 21:00h | Goran Bregovic
  • 8/5 | 21:00h | Yann Tiersen

Flamenco in Barcelona

17 Oct

Although we think visiting Andalusia is highly recommended, the truth is that not everyone has time to do a long tour across the peninsula … in this case, we can also enjoy the Flamenco in Barcelona!

We must not forget, however, that in this land also has its own style of flamenco heir: the Catalan Rumba. Examples are not hard to find from the rumba rhythms of Pescailla and Peret to the deep sounds of Miguel Poveda and mayte Martín or the mythical figure of Carmen Amaya.

Here are a few tips for you to enjoy the flamenco song and dance that accompanies it, as internationally recognized, in the city of Barcelona:

Poble Espanyol is a highly appropiate enviroment for Tablao del Carmen (Avda. Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 13). Just crossing though this charming corner of barcelona is a good preparation for an experience of the most authentic flamenco. You can enjoy also a traditional dinner from Andalucía.

At Tablao Cordobés (La Rambla, nº35), in the middle of the Ramblas, visitors can soak up the spirit of the cradle of flamenco. The pure Moorish decor is by the restorers of the Alhambra in Granada, giving the venue the air of an anuthentic Andalusian palace. This restaurant offers, since 1970, one of the most authentic flamenco shows in the city.

Since flamenco is not only Sevillanas and rumbas, Palacio del Flamenco ( Balmes St. nº 139) takes a look at all the styles that make up this masterpiece of the intangible heritage of humanity.

For an intimate evening in the environs of Plaça reial, we find a venue by the name of Los Tarantos (Plaça Reial, nº 17) offering daily song and dance shows aimed at a local audience eager to appreciate delicacy.

Finally, we have a display of the pure essence of flamenco in a venue like no other: the Palau de la Música Catalana (Carer del Palau de la Música, nº4) “Opera & Flamenco” offers a beautiful fusion of melodic opera, Spanish tradition and flamenco magic.

Book now your suite or apartement in The Urban Suites and enjoy it amd much more!

Song of the week: You and I – Wilco

11 Oct

We have chosen You and I of Wilco, to remember you that next Monday, 15th October, they will perform at Liceo Theatre of Barcelona, with The Hazey Janes as openers.

Address: La Rambla, 51-59

On the another side, we recommend you to pay atention to The Hazey Janes, because they are a band that deserve to be recognize due to their big talent. They will perform next 17th October at Sala Wurlitzer of Madrid, with Fuckaine as openers, don´t miss it!

If you are looking for accommodation in Barcelona for these dates, check the availability in The Urban Suites.
