Spring music and great female artists

The first music recommendations we suggest for May with the presence of women and vitalistic proposals.Spring Music at its best!


We start the month of May in Razzmatazz with electro-pop combo Icelandic FM Belfast. Much has happened since in 2005 Árni and Loa decided to record a song as a Christmas gift for some friends. The track was circulating in Reykjavik and gradually the project grew. His first production, How to make friends (2008) received approval from audiences and some critics. 01/05. Razzmatazz, Almogàvers 122, Barcelona. 23:00h. 17€ (free drink).


Living a concert like Joana Serrat surrounded by the archaeological remains of El Born Cultural Centre will be a unique and magical experience. Her music is organic and alive, and so prove his compositions, which feed on Anglo and American folk label. It's been seven years since her excellent debut, Liffey (2008), but Serrat's musical idea is clear and concise, and in her career we find more development than stylistic twists. After his great album Dear Great Canyon (2014), the singer will record new material this summer, but before she offers this special concert. 08/05. El Born CC, Pl. Comercial 12, Barcelona. 20:00h. 10€.


It is impossible to make our music recommendations without talking about the Guitar BCN 2015. This time, in BARTS we can enjoy the Spanish indie heroes Dorian. After conquering the Spanish and Latin American audiences with electronic intense hymns, the group celebrates the tenth anniversary with a show different from the usual and with other musicians on stage. The concert will also present their new and fifth album, Diez años y un día (2015), apart from including some unreleased tracks that had long been reserved for the occasion.  09/05. BARTS, Paral·lel 62, Barcelona. 21:00h. 18€.


Aurora & The Betrayers is the newest and most introspective work of the singer Aurora Garcia, who has been part of different musical groups with which has toured clubs and festivals around the country. Aurora & Betrayers is a proposal with influences that go through the American folk, soul, funk, R&B and pop music. Direct songs with very studied compositions and arrangements with which she has achieved a very personal sound that will not leave indifferent to any of those attending his concert at Apolo. 13/05. Apolo, Nou de la Rambla 113, Barcelona. 21:30h. 12€.


This first half of May, the legendary band playing in Barcelona will be Roxette. After nearly ten years retired, Roxette toured in 2011, playing in Barcelona. The duo of Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson, that has sold over 75 million albums and singles like The Look , Listen to your heart , It Must Have Been Love or Joyride is about to celebrate its 30-year career, what will happen in 2016, immortalized with a greatest hits album and this tour that returns to our city, the XXX - The 30th Anniversary Tour . 14/05.
