The heartfelt wail of the blues; the sultry heat of the campfire; the crazy swirl of the bal musette, all fused together with virtuosity and passion in the melting pot of 1930’s Paris: the result was gypsy jazz.
Now ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ play this exuberant, toe-tapping music with a swing and joie-de-vivre as fresh today as when Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli first conjured it from the back streets of Pigalle.
These Exeter based musicians have a reputation for their take on the ‘Hot Club’ style.
Expect toe-tapping rhythms and virtuoso melodies in a performance of gypsy favourites, jazz standards, soulful ballads and Latin swing, played with the verve and joy that is the heart of this music.
See them on our Showtime stage at 1pm.
