Bamba Wassoulou Groove and Joss Stone brought the house down as they closed this year’s Jazzaldia in the Trinitate Plaza, with the contagious joy of the group from Mali and the powerful voice of the British artist as she rendered soul rhythms with her sentimental, sometimes heartrending, yet delicate and enormously intimate style.
Pianists from Japan have played the lead part in the San Telmo Museum cloister during this edition of the Jazzaldia, which ended with the concert given by the virtuoso Hakuei Kim.
The percussionist Bandolero brought flamenco airs to the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, followed by Gonzalo del Val and his drums.
Rocio Márquez & Bronquio presented their combination of urban music and electronics with flamenco and singing in the Kursaal Auditorioa.
For the fifth day in a row, free concerts were performed throughout the afternoon and evening on the Frigo Gunea, Fnac Gunea and Garbera stages with groups including Mikel Legasa’s Quintet, Pacific Jazz Ambassadors, Xavi Maldonado & David Cid Quartet, Kinkfolk, Bengue and Olana Liss.
The band from Oñati, Ramada Inn, and the Nauticool stage provided the perfect combination for an unforgettable sundowner to end the festival.
