Tribute to Stephane and Django, 2017

The legacy of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli is the ever-pulsating, vivid and melodic music – “manouche jazz” or “gipsy jazz” as we know it today – has collected an immense amount of followers all over the world. This particular style of music appeared in the mid-1930’s, when Reinhardt and Grappelli joined forces in the band called Quintette du Hot Club de France. Tribute to Stephane and Django pays respect to these wonderful musicians and their heritage. With the direction of Kornél Fekete-Kovács, Modern Art Orchestra accompanies Roby Lakatos, Andreas Varady, Biréli Lagrène and Niek De Bruijn.
