ARTISTS AND PROFESSORS 2021

Sant Andreu Jazz Band

The closing concert of this 8th edition of the Jazzing Festival wants to be a celebration of the 15 years of life of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band and that is why we wanted to bring together some of the former musicians of the project with the current SAJB and have such important figures as this year’s guests: Dena Derose and Scott Hamilton. We will also count with the presence of Fredrik Norén, conductor of the Stockholm Jazz Orchestra. And two young guest voices: from the Canary Islands, Gabriela Suárez, recently awarded as Revelation Artist in the Canary Islands Music Awards and from Russia, Anastasia Ivanova, who has recently collaborated with the project.
