Ventana Abierta Jazz Club: Arturo Serra Trio
Vibraphonists are not abundant in Spain and even less with proven international category such as Arturo Serra, a musician born in Picassent (Valencia), who had his training as a percussionist and his first interventions in classical music. His concerns and his love for jazz made him gradually introduce himself into the music of the twentieth century.
He has participated in numerous jazz festivals such as Malaga, Ibiza, Estepona, Logroño, etc. He has a solid record career behind him with more than a dozen albums in his name. Winner of the first prize of the Getxo Jazz Festival.
He is currently a professor at the Philharmonic Orchestra of Malaga.
