Swingtet plays music based on the style of the legendary French gypsy swing guitarist Django Reinhardt. Django Reinhardt is considered one of the best jazz players and composers. He created a unique virtuoso style “jazz manouche”, also known as “gypsy swing.” The popular rhythms of jazz manouche are: swing, bossa-nova. samba, latin, valse musette, groove, chanson.
The repertoire includes both Django Reinhardt and own compositions, but Swingtet also plays international pop hits or classical music in swing style. Their varied repertoire makes Swingtet and ideal band for both solo concerts and corporate parties.
Gypsy swing is a style made famous by such artists as Stephane Grappelli, Edith Piaf, Stochelo Rosenberg, Tchavolo Schmitt, Gus Viseur, or the contemporary pop singer ZAZ.
