On Saturday 25 November at 20.00 the Jameos del Agua Auditorium in Lanzarote will host a recital by Barbara Hendricks, who is an international jazz and gospel singer. This world class artist has amazing artistic talent, but is also known for her activism for human rights, and this concert is reported to guarantee a magical experience in a unique space in the world.
This concert by Barbara Hendricks is called The Road to Freedom, and the concert star is accompanied by Ulf Englund on guitar and Matthias Algotsson on piano.
