Godwin Louis appears as the leader of two ensembles.

Louis Godwin is a sax player who was born in the USA but grew up in Haiti. He is a modern, enlightened and wide-ranging musician who is also active in arts and culture research. At the DIG. festival, he appears as the leader of two ensembles.

The first one, Future All Stars, consists of students at various stages in their studies, beginning with the Junior Department.

The second one, Godwin Louis Group, features Department of Jazz alumni who have gone on to create careers in New York, with drummer Jonathan Barber. We will have to wait until October to see what music will grow out of these encounters.

This year, the festival is highlighting names of the future: young talent and performers with a social conscience. The festival programme was designed by Jussi Kannaste and Sami Linna, who share the duties of Head of the Department of Jazz.
