San Miguel Mas i Mas Festival 2016

The Mas family run several of Barcelona's most important music venues including legendary jazz club Jamboree, Los Tarantos Flamenco Tablao, and techno club Moog. This means they have an enviable contact list of Spanish and international performers for the Mas i Mas festival, which last year ensured that Barcelona's music scene kept going through August with over 300 concerts at their own venues as well as the Born Cultural Centre, the Reial Cercle Artistic and the Palau de la Música. The genre-hopping programme is strong on jazz and flamenco: in 2015 there was veteran Barcelona swing band La Locomotora Negra, the Anton Jarl Quintet recreating John Coltrane's A Love Supreme for its 50th anniversary, and a closing concert from rising flamenco star Rocío Márquez. But the festival casts its net wide: 2015 also saw Polish singer Katarzyna Rooijens performing with the Barcelona Gipsy Klezemer orchestra, Menorcan pianist and improviser Marco Mezquida, and techno from Sebastian Mullaert.
