Concerts of 2019

Here are the concerts I went to during this edition:

  • George Benson: despite being completely jet lagged,  I enjoyed a lot this concert, especially the second part which was more up beat.
  • Jacob Collier: great concert by the super talented multi-instrumentist youtuber who is now with a full band.
  • Rodrigo y Gabriela: excellent show by the duo. The crowd loved it, so did I. I hope to interview them in the future.
  • Peter Frampton: probably the best concert and biggest surprise as I did not expect such a level of energy.
  • Juan Carmona: deep and powerful Flamenco concert with some great solo pieces as well as music with the band.
