A world of jazz – with John Beasley, John Patitucci, Kiko Freitas, Dhafer Youssef, China Moses, Peter Asplund and Magnus Lindgren.

Konserthuset Stockholm's Blue House Jazz All Stars, featuring Peter Asplund and Magnus Lindgren, welcomes back global artist John Beasley for a unique concert showcasing internationally renowned musicians from several continents. Expect the unexpected when they come on stage together with Tunisian Oud and vocalist Dhafer Youssef, Brazilian drummer Kiko Freitas, soul and jazz diva China Moses and Italian-American bassist John Patitucci for an intercultural musical experience. This act of musical collaboration hopes to show the power of music to diminish borders.

China Moses has a long career as a singer as well as a presenter for MTV France. She tours as a solo artist and has worked with Meshell Ndegeocello and DJ Mehdi.

Kiko Freitas was born into a family of musicians, poets and artists and grew up learning and drumming with the who’s who of Brazilian and world music, including Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Michel Legrand.

Dhafer Youssef discovered the echo of his voice and its resonances at an early age, then in his youth he picked up an Oud and his career as a musician became extraordinary. He is a recording artist and can also be heard in movie soundtracks.

Much of the music for Jazz Across Continents is arranged by versatile composer-arranger-pianist John Beasley who seeks to create musical bridges sparking cultural collaboration and creating joy in the process. Beasley is known for his work with Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and as Music Director for the Thelonious Monk Institute’s International Jazz Day global concerts.
