Sona9:"Maria Jaume / Joina / Relat” concert, as part of "La Mercè és Música"

Sona9: Maria Jaume / Joina / Relat (Balearic Islands / Catalonia; folk-pop / rap-funk-jazz-electronica /dub-trap-hip-hop)

Maria Jaume, the winner of the 19th edition of the Sona9 up-and-coming talent competition, is bringing to La Mercè festival her own offering of acoustic folk and indie pop at their most intimate. On stage, she’ll be performing a selection of songs from the album she’ll be releasing over the coming days, Fins a maig no revisc.

She’ll be accompanied on stage by Joina, the winner of Sona9 2019 Youth Prize, with a unique offering that blends rap, funk, jazz and electronica. You will hear the result from the songs of Companyes, the début album from this pianist and composer from the Empordà region of Catalonia. Her music becomes a transformative tool for rethinking gender roles, factual powers, and the existence of other ways of living and loving.

The event featuring up-and-coming talent from the Catalan scene will conclude with Relat, a band from La Garrotxa who won the Cases de la Música Prize at the Sona9 2019 and who have just released their first album, Contratemps, which combines reggae and dub with urban music such as trap, hip-hop and dancehall.

Sona9 is a competition dedicated to promoting and recognising the new values of today’s music sung in Catalan. It is organised by the group Enderrock, Catalunya Ràdio and Televisió de Catalunya with the support of the Department of Culture and the Department of Youth of Catalan Government..
