The director of Tourism of Galicia, Nava Castro, presented the poster of performances in an act in which she was accompanied by the mayor of La Coruña, Inés Rey.

The Palacio de la Ópera de Coruña hosted the presentation of the new edition of the concert cycle Jacobo Mattersin an act in which the complete poster of concerts programmed until the end of the year within the framework of this initiative, inserted in the programming of the Xacobeo 21-22 and in the Xacobeo Concerts, was made public.
On the occasion of the celebration of the Holy Year, and as was done in the 2010 edition, the cycle Galicia Importa becomes the Jacobean Cycle Mattersto present its most important edition to date, with a dozen concerts with internationally renowned artists, some of them with exclusive dates in Galicia.
In the presentation, in which the director of Tourism of Galicia, Nava Castro, and the mayor of La Coruña, Inés Rey, participated, the person in charge of Tourism emphasized the importance of the commitment to a diverse, quality musical offer and, above all, decentralized throughout the territory and aimed at all types of audiences, principles on which all the programming for the celebration of this Holy Year is based.
In this sense, Nava Castro valued the success achieved by this cycle of concerts throughout the ten editions in which it has been in operation, a success that ‘allowed Galicia to be placed on the independent music scene, making it possible for bands and internationally recognized artists will stop in our territory, many times as the only stop in Spain on their world tours,’ he explained.
In addition, he recalled that he remembered that the band Simple Minds, for example, returns to Galicia 20 years after its last concert in the community, and does so hand in hand with this cycle.
