Continuing the tradition of Skeppsholm’s Festival, Stockholm Jazz & Blues and Sthlm Jazz Fest, Stockholm Music & Arts aim to provide a high quality program that is both ambitious and unique that will help expand the musical and cultural horizons of our nation’s capital. From August 3-5, 2012, Stockholm Music & Arts will offer a program that combines intelligent art with distinct musical artistry – some of the best Sweden and the world have to offer.
Today, we do some advertising for the festival and play a song from one of the participants who had been quite hot in the media and among friends.
