Skiing and music in Andorra

Andorra is a tourism destination for nature, skiing and shopping. Yet it is also a place for culture, thanks to its wide range of museums, the country’s rich catalogue of Romanesque art, and in the most recent years thanks to its Music Season, which is held at the National Auditorium of Andorra.

Between January and June, the 2020 Season at the Auditorium offers a concert schedule featuring the top names in music, a wonderful way to top off any stay in Andorra, whether you’re here for the skiing, the nature or the shopping.

 

The series of performances begins on 10 January, with the voice of Dulce Pontes, one of Portugal’s greatest singers. February will see the stage taken over by Andorra’s own group Madretomasa —which will be celebrating its tenth anniversary with a new album— and Pablo Milanés, one of today’s greatest singer-songwriters.

In March, it will be Ute Lemper’s turn. On 7 March, the singer and actress will be performing her Rendezvous with Marlene, a journey through the history of the legendary Marlene Dietrich. A tribute born out of the personal experiences of the two women, their memories, a great deal of research and a touch of imagination.

For its part, April will be offering three concerts, featuring El Kanka on the 4th, Jordi Botey on the 23rd, coinciding with the festivities of Sant Jordi, and El Pot Petit on the 25th, for family audiences.

The Malaga-born Juan Gómez Canca, aka El Kanka, will be bringing his latest musical creations to us, with his El payaso tour; Jordi Botey will be presenting a concert entitled Oh, benvinguts autors, and El Pot Petit will be giving a show for families, with all the magic, hope and cheer that characterise this group

Singer Lila Downs from Mexico and Brazil’s own Bebel Gilberto will be bringing the rhythms from the other side of the Atlantic to Andorra on 13 and 23 May, respectively. Both of these Grammy award winners will be bringing us a bit closer to the sounds of Mexico and Brazil, while mixing in healthy doses of tradition and innovation.

To finish the schedule of music, rhythm and sound, on 18 June Kiko Veneno will be presenting Sombrero roto, a production combining electronic airs with the poetry he is known for, and most of all, fresh and modern sounds.

As a collaborating institution of the Auditorium Season, the illa Carlemany shopping centre is a concert ticket outlet: tickets are available at the Information Point and the Customer Service Desk, and prices range between €8 and €20.
