Biography

The Banjara Quartet is a Gypsy jazz band, created by musicians from around the world, bringing their diverse influences to bring a unique flavor to the gypsy mind. Gypsy jazz is the music of the Sinti Gypsies of Europe. We find this music also under the name of gypsy jazz, hot club music or gypsy swing. Django Reinhardt, the father of the genre, as well as the musician Stephane Grapelli developed this musical style. The Banjara Quartet wants to keep this spirit alive.
