There is also Cuban pianist Harold López-Nussa, who won the Montreux Jazz Piano Competition in 2005 and made a name for himself with his interpretation of Latin jazz music. Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger Rodrigo Amarante, who made a name for himself with the soundtrack of the Narcos series 'Tuyo' and took the audience on a journey with his ability to bring different genres together, is also on the list. Tatiana Eva-Marie, described by Vanity Fair as “the millennial shaking up the jazz scene”, will also be on stage. Saxophone virtuoso Isaiah Collier, who creates gripping dialogues both on stage and in the studio with his orchestra The Chosen Few, will also perform at the festival. Tomas Fujiwara 7 Poets Trio, which presents the colorful intersection of modern classical composition and improvisation on stage, is among the other names that will participate in the festival.
