As part of the 'Evening concerts at the Palau' cycle, there will be havaneres from the Port-Bo trio. Celebrating over 50 years of making music, Port-Bo is made up of Pep Nadal (tenor), Irineo Ferrer ("Mineu", baritone) and Carles Casanovas (bass and conductor).
Havaneres originate from the 19th century, when many Catalans left to work or find their fortune in south America. These lilting sea shanties were sung by Catalans returning from Cuba. Usually performed outdoors in the summer months, it's customary for the spectators to hold white handkerchiefs and to sup on rom cremat, a hot rum cocktail.
You may need to pass on the rum at the Palau, but be sure to remember your handkerchief.
Price: €12 to €15.
