Saxophonist and composer, Gai Bryant has earnt a reputation as a Queen of Latin Jazz. 

She is fascinated with all the rhythms that make us move, particularly those blending Cuban, Peruvian and Afro-Caribbean influences. Gai joins musicians, dancers and communities across Sydney, through her projects with passionate arrangements that integrate traditional dance and song with a modern jazz aesthetic. Irresistible performances by her Afro-Peruvian sextet ALLY will open celebrations, before her big band, Caribé, will tear down the house in a visual and aural display. Vivid and frenetic, it will be impossible to walk away from this event without a smile on your face.
