Yuval & Convidados @ CoLAB (Botafogo) – Every week, CoLAB opens its nightly programming by getting some of the best musicians in Rio’s instrumental jazz scene to perform live at their space.

This Tuesday, Yuval Ben Lior will be bringing his unique brand of jazz, including elements of choro and samba. The Israeli musician also specializes in gypsy jazz, and has studied with the great masters of the genre, themselves disciples of the legendary Django Reinhardt.

This should be a great free night for those interested in jazz, gypsy jazz, or both.

The music should start at 8PM.
