Description [edit]
Cathedral Square Park has the appeal and look of a small Central Park. Plenty of benches, trees and a children's area make Cathedral Park a wonderful get-away area in an otherwise busy downtown. Host of the Thursday night "Cathedral Park Jazz" concerts and the Saturday morning "East Town Farm Market," the park is always happening. And it's got free Wi-Fi.

Alma Afrobeat Ensemble (Barcelona) at Jazz in the Park

Alma Afrobeat Ensemble (Barcelona), the premier Afrobeat group from Spain, is embarking on their second US tour in as many years. The band, in anticipation of their fourth studio album, due in early 2018, will spend three weeks throughout the Midwest and West Coast of the USA from June 22nd until July 10th. We are playing in Jazz at the Park on June 29th, and we thought you would like to know! The bandís high-energy, original Afrobeat music benefits from lead singer Joe Psalmistís (Lagos, Nigeria) powerful voice. He joined this 9 piece international ensemble 2 years ago, and recorded on the bandís third album, ďItís TimeĒ (2016). Bandleader and founder Aaron Feder (Chicago) brought the band from the USA to Barcelona, and found new musicians. Currently there are 9 members from 9 different countries, a fact that mirrors the multi-cultural modernity of Barcelona. The band has played most major festivals in Spain, such as WOMAD Canary Islands, the Merce, and Fiestas de San Isidro. In 2017 alone they have been to London, Germany, France, and the Canary Islands, and they are on one of the main stages for Rototom 2017, the world's biggest reggae festival. Our EPK is attached, as well as relevant links. Please do not hesitate to write or call for more information, interview opportunities and more.
