Bio

Formed out of a love for the legendary partnership between Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grapelli, 'Cigány Weaver' is one of Australia's most exciting gypsy-jazz ensembles, with a dedicated and passionate following around the country. Their sound is reminiscent of jazz Manouche, traditional swing and Romani music, interwoven with compelling originals and the band’s reinterpretations of classics from popular culture. Through virtuosic and energetic live performances, 'Cigány Weaver' invoke everything from subtle toe-tapping to exuberant dance floor foot-stomping.
