Jazz : A Buzzing Staple Of Catalan Culture

Barcelona is a city of many facades. It has an abundance of historical artifacts, great gastronomic options, architectural wonders, grapevine yards and outstanding beaches. Above everything else, Barcelona harbours Catalonia’s most endearing musical legacies. Well turned up with the charm of tones and chords everywhere, Barcelona proves to be a treasure trove of music. Out of a variety of music genres, it has happened that “Jazz” shined lustrously in the hearts of the Catalans. Jazz - a musical standpoint  to understand Barcelona’s cultural philosophy.

Jazz is not that happened anytime recent but it crept into Barcelona’s public cognizance at the beginning of the Twenties. Stepping back in time, Catalans embraced a new style of daily life that fed off their routine. Since ages, Jazz did the honor of being the gateway for peoples’ relaxation. Jazz happened to Catalans as a musical movement. A movement that represents real lives of families and friends enjoying a weekend night over inspiring food, wine, and above all ‘music’.

Histories spoke about rapid technological, political, and cultural changes of Catalonia, but none could utter a word about changes in musical choices of Catalans. The truth is that Jazz became an important part of Catalan lives until today without a pinch of difference. In the ensuing decades, fascination for this music genre has never drooped down. The vibrancy of Jazz is still alive with its manifested signs in the streets, cinemas, restaurants and clubs of Barcelona. Cheers, to the everlasting tooting of the trumpet!
