Nobody can say that Barcelona is not a city characterized by its music and its rhythm. In the Catalonian capital, along as in the cities that surround it, every year many events and concerts take place. You can find in them many different styles, from Flamenco to Rock, going through the Hip-Hop or the Jazz and the lovely Habaneras.
These are some of our favorites, from Murmuri Boutique Hotel 4-stars, located in Rambla Catalunya, that we recommend to know and enjoy.
