About

The SWING DE GITANES group is active for more than three years with a resume of more than 300 successful performances. Since it was formed, the group’s main goal was to introduce the Gypsy Swing to the Israeli audience and to create a community of musicians in that style. The group’s repertoire consists of Django Reinhardt’s and Stephane Grappelli’s wonderful compositions, Parisian popular songs from the 20’s-40’s, contemporary gypsy Jazz with unique arrangements and also original compositions of the group.

Through the sweeping melodies, combining funny anecdotes about his versatile personality and even the Jewish connection, the amazing life story of Django Rienhardt is revealed (Dajango, the legendary 2 fingered gypsy guitar player is considered as the founder and father of the style).
