Clubedo kicks off on 6th December in Porto
Clubedo jazz happens in the Invicta from 16 to 14 December. This event is organised by the Porta-Jazz Association. There will be improvisational compositions and programmed sounds, as the outright intention is to revive the jazz circuit in Porto, with iconic jazz clubs hosting emerging bands, both national and international, on a regular basis.
Clubedo first edition was part of the Porta-Jazz Festival in 2018; but this year, the Clubedo event has its own emphasis and it is held separately while working as a preview of the Porta Jazz Festival, which takes place between 7th and 9th February 2020, at Rivoli.
The 10-day event includes 11 concerts, a school gathering and a record release, bringing together renowned artists, emerging talents and international partnerships, as its main goal is to bolster jazz and continually promote the renewal of this music genre.
Porto hosts Luís Lapa & Pé de Cabra, the Trio João, Puzzle, North Camels Large Ensemble, Wiz, Filipe Teixeira Trio "Tao", Sextet Mário Santos "bloco A6", Galip "Cale", Aladdin Killers, Paula Sousa and Ohad Talmor Trio.
Price ticketing varies from free entry to 8 euros, and Porta-Jazz members are entitled to free entrance in all sessions.
