Alternatilla Jazz 2018

Jazz over Mallorca

alternatilla jazz 2018

Fans of Jazz like me will know by now that Mallorca has many local Jazz festivals throughout the year – Jazz Voyeur, Sa Pobla, Banyalbufar, Smooth Jazz – whose concerts all take place in their own localities.

Thanks to the multicultural association Alternatilla which promotes the arts, music, cinema and so on at the cutting edge of the spectrum, there's a Jazz festival taking place island wide this month and next.

This year, as well as giving the opportunity for local musicians to perform in the festival, Alternatilla will feature a selection of Jazz combos and artists from Poland who are at the forefront of the Jazz scene in that country.

So, without further ado, here's who you can see, when and where, all with a 20:30 start;

As you can see from the names on the bill, there's quite a lot of cross pollination going on with musicians from the different countries joining each other on stage. It can only be good for the future of the music and for us, the audience, that the different nationalities are working together and not being poles apart.

Sorry, couldn't resist – I'll get my coat!
