A fitting finale for CULTURESCAPES 2011 comes in the form of a jam session with the singer Karolina & Band and Kutiman. Kutiman, who displayed his many talents as a video artist at the opening of the festival, will perform as a DJ. The 2005 debut album of Karolina Avratz, the soul lady from Israel, is refreshing and adventurous. Karolina and the Israeli band Funset combine various styles of music, resulting in a mixture of reggae, soul, funk and hip-hop delivered with Karolina's unique voice.
