The Jota at the Academy

Academia is what the University is called, in reference to the scientific and cultural activity that it develops through its three substantive functions: teaching, research and extension. On this occasion, the Aragonese Academy par excellence, the University of Zaragoza, dignifies the jota and dignifies itself by hosting a new edition of the recital The Jota at the Academy, starring Nacho del Río and Beatriz Bernad, two of the most representative voices of the process of recovery and reworking of the Aragonese jota. On this occasion they do it as a tribute to their master Jesús Gracia, a prodigious jota singer whose birth is now one hundred years old.The recital will take place in the Paraninfo of the University of Zaragoza, on October 7, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. In it, Nacho and Beatriz will offer a selection of jota tunes chosen from the classic and the most current styles, with the accompaniment of a traditional rondalla directed by Javier Badules.
