The Codarts Big Band, consisting of students from the Rotterdam Conservatory, will play the repertoire of Moacir Santos during the festival. This Brazilian composer has had a great influence; his best-known songs are Nanã and Coisas. Santos' style is characteristic and he has composed a lot of film scores. The orchestra is conducted by Ilja Reijngoud, who's also a soloist on trombone. Other soloists are Lilian Vieira (vocals) and Jasper van Damme (saxophone).
