The monument was the birthplace of Vasco da Gama, and the festival, showing the diversity of musical expressions in the world, follows and remembers the intercultural revolution brought about by the navigator’s travels.

Music style

From world music to jazz, from folk to blues, from tango to reggae, from classical music to fusion.
