I play an International line-up of artists that I love that make it a mission to spread their cultural heritage using Jazz as one of their ways of expression.
They have been featured in Jazz magazines, performed in the most important jazz festivals around the world but some of them don´t even consider themself's Jazz artists.
Like John Coltrane once said -
"My music is the spiritual expression of what I am: my faith, my knowledge, my being."
