Swing de Gitanes
The Swing de Gitanes create a unique musical experience that draws its elements from the colors of the gypsy music, the elegance of the French melodies, the liveliness of the American swing, and from the middle eastern arts. With fresh virtuosity, they revive and renew the gypsy swing, which was established by the legendary guitarist, Django Reinhardt. With over ten years of varied activities and hundreds of shows, the Swing de Gitanes lead the gypsy swing in Israel, perform in music festivals across Europe, and receive much praise. Their third album, Middle East Gypsy Jazz Project, generated much interest in festivals abroad, and the ensemble was invited to perform in Europe and the UK. The group participated in all major music and jazz festivals in Israel and created collaborations with local artists such as Miki Gavrielov and Dori Ben Ze’ev, as well as collaborations with major international artists.
