‘National Focus Project’ in 2022, which has been held since 2010. Not only the picturesque landscape of Spain but also its diverse culture and distinct music styles, influenced by Roman Catholicism and the Muslim, have attracted a lot of people.
The 19th Jarasum Jazz Festival features young and talented 4 musicians who currently lead the Spanish jazz scene. Furthermore, the most renowned illustrator Sonia Pulido is in charge of making an official poster for the festival. A film screening event also takes place, so visitors can enjoy Spanish movies and a concert performed by a Spanish pianist.
Like other countries, Spanish jazz is an authentic cultural blend with a wide range of music, from Jota, flamenco, Islamic music to electronic music. Each region in Spain has their own distinctive musical characteristics. In Jarasum Jazz Festival, every Spanish musician comes from different regions: Salamanca(Daniel Garcia Trio), Galicia(SUMRRÁ), Catalunya(Barencia), and Mallorca(Joana Gomila & Laia Vallés), each representing different style and background of Spain.
