The Minister of Culture, Miquel Iceta, also on Twitter, has assured: "The world of music is mourning. That the earth is mild."

The Catalan Acadèmia of Music has also regretted the death of Sabatés, "a reference of the Laietà movement and the fusion of jazz, classical music and Mediterranean music."
