Bireli Lagrene & friends

Who better to interpret DJANGO REINHARDT's music afresh than another great Rom guitarist? BIRELI LAGRENE is a Sinti gypsy from Alsace. He was playing guitar at four, jazz at seven & recording professionally at thirteen. Bireli is his own man, who beautifuly expresses his lifelong passion for Django on his new CD "GYPSY PROJECT".
Bireli Lagrene & friends - including the great Romanian violinist FLORIN NICULESCU - mostly play Django tunes from the late forties. Bireli adds his own touch & accordionist RICHARD GALLIANO has a wondeful cameo role. The core band includes bassist DIEGO IMBERT & rhythm guitarist HOLZMANO LAGRENE. Whether hot & fast or very tender "Gipsy Project" is always deeply passionate.
