This provides an opportunity for the Youth and world music communities of Victoria to have an opportunity to experience playing with a Latin band as well as experimenting with African and world music influences.

Jazz has been influenced greatly by the cultures of Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean all reflecting the African diaspora. Jazz has been one of the major sources of global unity and there is a continuous exciting fusion of world cultures keeping the music alive and constantly growing.
