With gospel music enjoying somewhat of a rebirth across the city, it seems an apt moment for the first edition of ‘Gospel i Espirituals de Catalunya’ at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM): a three-month festival that sees eight Catalan gospel choirs performing in a series of concerts. The series is organised by the same people behind the radio programme La Hora del Blues, Vicente Zumel and Roser Blues. Having founded the programme in 1981, the duo have an extensive wealth of experience in the world of gospel, jazz and blues. Four of the twelve concerts in the series are being held this month, starting with Mas Gospel on the 5th, directed by Carmen Avila Gorozpe. Up next are the Sedeta Gospel Singers on the 12th, followed by the Grup Vocal Zetzània on the 19th, and Gospel Joy on the 26th.
The festival continues into March, with another four dates. More information here.
