After two solo albums, Sobral will present his third album, “Alma Nuestra”, to the audience in San Sebastián.

This year’s event will also shine the spotlight on local and national artists including Jorge Pardo, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Chano Domínguez, Marco Mezquida, Joachim Kühn, Oreka TX, Iñaki Salvador, Carles Benavent, Javier Colina, and Perico Sambeat, many of them regulars on the Jazzaldia scene who are guaranteed to delight the local audience..
Silvia Pérez Cruz, a festival regular, will also perform at the 55th Heineken Jazzaldia.
Chano Domínguez will perform in the Plaza de la Trinidad, which will once again serve as the festival’s main stage.
As usual, this extraordinary edition will also feature free concerts at different venues around the city. Most of these concerts, which will strongly feature local young artists, will be held at Frigo Gunea and Zurriola Terraza.
Most of the free concerts will be performed at the Frigo Gunea and Zurriola Terraza venues, which will be adapted to the health and safety measures.
