Taking place in the beautiful MEAM Museum (Museum of European Art) in Barcelona and with pianist Ismael Dueñas, my ambition is to take people on a musical journey between styles, genres and cultures. Too often we are confined within a particular category of music, like a box in a record store (remember those;), and lose the possibility to soar across the musical landscape on the wings of wondrous exploration.
Friday 21 June
18:00 €14 (includes museum visit)
For this concert I undertake an intimate and emotional musical journey that encapsulates my mood at this moment in time, with a repertoire selected because of its ability to release deep-rooted feelings within me. Sometimes we don’t know why a composition affects us as it does but the result can be cathartic, releasing strong and repressed emotions that need expressing. Music helps me to heal and hopefully you will share this experience with me in a concert of very personal favourites.

Reliving Whitney Houston
Following the sold-out Whitney show at the Wild Bunch club in Barcelona and the rewards that engaging with and reworking this material, I have decided to take this exploration a step further. The first concert was piano and voice only but for this next gig I work with Jazz trio Jaume Vilaseca, Dick Them and Ramon Diaz. With Jaume’s wonderful arrangements and the challenge of Houston’s incredible vocal range, we have challenged ourselves to make something special. Join us to see if we rise to the occasion.

WHITNEY (ONE NIGHT ONLY)
This concert is both a tribute to a remarkable voice and a chance to revisit material that is so embedded in the popular consciousness that it becomes almost invisible. Along with her long-term collaborator, the incredible Catalan pianist Jaume Vilaseca, the show will be an intimate revisiting and revelatory retelling of the songs of Whitney Houston.
A new departure! Violetta hosts her own radio show as part of a new programme on RadioKanalBarcelona 106.9FM called Movers and Shakers. With three other women presenters, she will host the show at least once a month. Violetta's hour will be subtitled 'Voices for the Earth's Transformation - how your creative expression transforms you and your world'. Each programme she will have a guest to interview, someone who has made their mark through their cultural intervention. The first programme airs on Wednesday 2nd May, 11am to 12, and then runs every Wednesday thereafter. The actual schedule for Violetta's shows, with guests, will be posted soon. Check it out on http://radiokanalbarcelona.com/ or Violetta's Facebook page below.
