20:30H - 21:30H
Irene Reig is one of the standard-bearers of the new generation of Catalan jazz musicians. Energy, passion and spontaneity are what define her repertoire of original songs along with her own versions of bop and hardbop classics.

21:45H - 22:45H 
The Berlin based Ukrainian singer Ganna Gryniva has been traveling in different regions of Ukraine collecting ancient folklore songs and arranging them for her ethnic jazz quintet GANNA. The music courageously bridges several worlds from jazz to folklore, from experimental to neoclassical esthetics. Highly virtuoso and playful, but also full of melancholy, the musicians immerse themselves in the history and the mystery of the various music traditions and create a neo-native language. In August 2020, Double Moon Records and Jazz Thing Next Generation released GANNA‘s album Dykyi Lys (Wild Fox in Ukrainian) which received remarkable recognition from the international music press.
