Oleg Kireyev and "Orlan" will perform at the 22nd festival "Nishvil" in the Serbian city of Nis (August 11-14, 2016). This festival is distinguished by an interesting story and a serious scale. Over the years of existence at the festival were such jazz stars as Randy Brecker, John Patitucci, Candy Dulfer, Roy Hargrove, Mingus Dinasty, The Cookers, Billy Cobham, Ron Carter, Dr Donald Byrd, Ginger Baker, Incognito, etc.
This year, the audience of "Nishville" expects about 8 stages, master classes, night movie screenings and a lot of other interesting events. Along with Oleg Kireyev and his band at the festival will perform Bill Evans, Al Di Meola and other famous musicians.
