Hungarian Django Swing (HU)

28/09/19, 20:00

Swing à la Django is an innovative seven-membered band, which has showed its talents many times in Hungary and abroad as well. They have created a special style-mix in their music with the harmony of authentic Hungarian music, French chansons, world manouche swing, tango and jazz. This has resulted in a unique style, that they call Hungarian Django swing. At their concerts they go back to the roots, their music is inspired by Django Reinhardt, the greatest Belgian-born gypsy-jazz guitarist, and they follow in the footsteps of Reinhardt to evoke the atmosphere of the 30s-40s.

The musicians of Swing à la Django previously worked with Stochelo Rosenberg, Sting, Zubin Mehta, Andrea Bocelli and Roby Lakatos. They played in Carnegie Hall, New York; Opera Hong Kong; Royal Albert Hall, London; Montreux Jazz Festival, Switzerland and at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Quebec.

The concert is highly recommended for all swing music and gypsy jazz lovers.
