In conversation with Maikol Pairdi for Music Travel Guide podcast

Listen to “#3 The 5 Must Visit Places to enjoy Jazz Music in Berlin with Toms Rudzinskis” on Spreaker.

BERLIN IN FOCUS. While on tour I had the pleasure to have a quick chat with Maikol Piardi who has recently started a podcast called Music Travel Guide.

In these series focusing on the Berlin Jazz, I shared my views on the scene, audience and vibe. Made me think of curating a list of my own as well. Great to see more outlets focusing on and covering these topics.

Head to to check it out and listen to the episode! ????
