Guitarist Al Di Meola is originally from New Jersey and has a playing style with influences from jazz, rock, fusion and Latin. Branford Marsalis will also be on the Eindhoven stage on 2 November. He was born and raised in New Orleans, the city where jazz originated. The saxophonist is known for the song ‘English Man in New York’ by Sting.

Lakecia Benjamin is from New York and is next on the So Whats Next list. She is a jazz, funk and R&B saxophonist and was named artist of the year by Jazzism magazine last year.
