The Festival De Cajón! returns to Barcelona for another year, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Barcelona International Jazz Festival. It is one of the city's most important flamenco festivals and is noted for always featuring one of the best bills on the music scene. Renowned names such as Diego el Cigala, Los Farruco and Enrique Morente are among its past performers.

This new edition mixes performances by major world stars with young emerging talents. On the one hand we have the voice of José Mercé and the power of Tomatito forming a deluxe duo in the stunning setting of the Palau de la Música Catalana. At the same venue we find Diego el Cigala who will be paying homage to Bebo Valdés.<0> The Sala BARTS will play host to Mayte Martin who will be presenting her new and highly personal project in which the flamenco 'cantaora' will also be performing as a singer-songwriter. The Gran Teatre del Liceu is the amazing space chosen to welcome the flamenco guitarist Vicente Amigo, one of the legends of flamenco and considered as one of the best guitarists in the world. He is performing The Memory of the Senses with an elegant and melodic style that takes flamenco back to its purest form. All of this without forgetting the guitarist that every cantaorwould like to accompany them, the magnificent Chicuelo, a true maestro from start to finish.

Regarding emerging stars, the festival presents José del Tomate at Luz de Gas, accompanied by his father, Tomatito. Lastly, Kiki Morente, son of the eternal Enrique Morente, has been given the responsibility of closing this year's festival.
