Eddie Palmieri—Salsa and Latin Jazz Festival 2012
The Puerto Rican pianist will be the official 'godfather' of this year's Salsa and Latin Jazz Festival
The Salsa and Latin Jazz Festival, organised by the Barcelona group La Sucursal SA, comes to the city for a three-day run of music.
Guest artists are mainly international, with musicians from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Panama and New York as well as the hosts themselves. One of the most important shows is the coming together of Calle 13 and Rubén Blades, with pianist Eddie Palmieri acting as the 'godfather' for this year's event, where he will be celebrating 50 years in the industry. Concerts are accompanied by salsa contests and dance workshops, among other activities.
There will be two nights of concerts at Poble Espanyol (20th and 21st) with the final night taking place at La Farga de L'Hospitalet de Llobregat on July 27th.
Tickets start at €33
