On the evening of June 4, jazz musicians from Estonia, Finland and the USA will gather to pay homage to Brazilian music. The members of the band have always had a strong passion for the heritage of Brazilian music and invite all visitors to the Vision Festival to take part in it. Energetic heating is provided by music from artists such as Elis Regina, Chico Pinheiro, Tania Maria, Joao Bosco and others.
