This year’s JAZZ IM festival in Barcelona was dedicated to Israel. The embassy supported the participation of two Israeli jazz ensembles in the festival, the Tal Gamlieli Trio and the Guy Mintos Trio. The ensembles participated in two concerts, gave master classes, and performed at showcase events in Barcelona. The interest they created was so great that the organizers decided to stream the shows since all of the event tickets had been sold.

Lola Marsh, an Israeli indie-pop band, arrived in Spain for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak. The ensemble held performances in Barcelona and Madrid and was received with acclaim. In November, the band is expected to return to Spain again and introduce its new album

The “Shalosh” band will be performing in Spain for two concerts in Catalonia, in the famous Jamboree and Ultramar halls. Israeli singer Noga Erez will be in Spain during June and July to participate again in the Primavera Sound festival, and she will also hold additional performances throughout Spain.
