Black man playing sax

The famous duo of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald was not just an alliance of two outstanding performers - it's a whole chapter in the history of contemporary music. On August 30, UBK beach in Kyiv will be filled with charming jazz sounds from Marco Concert.

Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald became one of the most powerful duets in the history of jazz music. Together, they released three studio albums. One of them, "Porgy and Bess", was recorded for the eponymous opera by George Gershwin. The famous composition from this record called "Summertime" became a real classic.

Hits by Louis and Ella will be performed by soloists of Old Fashioned Band, ex-participants of "The Voice" project, Anyanya Udongwo and Kemi Oke.
