This year, the event will treat jazz-lovers and music aficionados to the best jazz being made by the geniuses behind the drums. The event will featurer renowned drummer Joost Lijbaart performing some innovative jazz crafted in Scandinavian conservatories. Accompanying him will be vocalist Sanne Rambags and guitarist.
