“If you have to ask what jazz is, you’ll never know,” said Louis Armstrong. Well, this weekend is all about jazz! The Reykjavík Jazz Festival is here to present you the very best of Icelandic music. Performing are big names like Tómas R. Einarsson, Sigríður Thorlacius, Sigurður Flosason, Stefan Bauer and Reykjavík Big Band, to name a few. International musicians have travelled to Iceland for the festival as well, including Brooklyn’s famous Snarky Puppy, led by the bassist, composer and producer Michael League.
