The performers are Jonay Mesa & Luis Sánchez, Yul Ballesteros Trío, CJS Reunion Sara Liu Octet and Kepa Martínez & The Hot Club Tenerife


This weekend, the Auditorio de Tenerife is planning two concert days for the Canarias Jazz Showroom festival. On Friday (6th) the Chamber Hall will welcome Jonay Mesa & Luis Sánchez, a guitar and piano duo, and the Yul Ballesteros Trio at 7:30 p.m. The following day (Saturday 7th), in the same hall and at the same time, performs the CJS Reunion Sara Lilu Octet. Later, at the exit of the concert, there will be a live performance courtesy of Kepa Martínez and The Hot Club Tenerife.

Jonay Mesa & Luis Sánchez is a new project that emerged after these two young musicians, composers and improvisers met. They bring together an original repertoire arranged for guitar and piano that combines the musical imagination of each one. They have shared a journey full of dedication, complicity, and improvisation taking flight in each musical piece.

Alma, the new album project by Yul Ballesteros, shows the personal and musical evolution of this guitarist and composer imbued with elegance, delicacy, and lots of nuances. This album is grounded in the personal growth and musical maturity of the artist. He presents this project with the trio formed by Ballesteros, Carlos Meneses on double bass and Akior García on drums.

Sara Lilu is a young singer from Tenerife, a graduate of the Higher Conservatoire of the Liceu of Barcelona and an outstanding voice in the regional jazz scene. She has just presented her final project in Barcelona with her own compositions and a band led by herself and formed by other talented jazz students from the school. Canarias Jazz Showroom is giving her the chance to lead a band of great regional musicians from different generations under the name CJS Reunion Sara Lilu Octet. The aim is to create bonds and gradually make her professional project a reality.

The project CJS Reunion Sara Lilu Octet emerged with the intention of celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Canarias Jazz Showroom, a festival created to present the jazz projects produced in the Canaries or led by regional musicians. The octet is formed by Kike Perdomo, Carlos Pérez, Idafe Pérez, Kevin Díaz, Agustín Pérez, Iván Gutiérrez, Carlos Costa and the singer Sara Lilu. In addition, during the evening the Archipiélago Awards will be presented.

The band Hot Club Tenerife is formed by regional musicians united by a passion for swing music and improvisation. Its repertoire encompasses everything from immortal classics by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli to contemporary swing pieces. They perform it to the rhythm of the acoustic guitar with Yeray Herrera, accordion with Pablo González, double bass with Augustin Buenafuente, and drums with Filemón Montero.

On this occasion, the group will involve the clarinettist Kepa Martínez as a soloist, trained in Modern Music and Jazz at the Higher Conservatoire of the Canaries. He has performed at many festivals and received the Archipiélago Award for Emerging Artist. He has participated in the recording of several jazz records and currently combines his activity as a clarinettist with his work as a teacher at the Professional Music Conservatoire of the Canaries.
