LES GITANS BLANCS
FREE IN THE FRONT BAR
Descriptively, the musical group: “Les Gitans Blancs” – “The White Gypsies” is a synergy of personalities/musicians of garish milieu, both in ethnicity as well as in musical provenience: From the combination of classical, pop, rock, ethnic folk and jazz influences to Croatian, Italian, Czech, English and Prussian background.
Their repertoire represents a reflection of the general “spirit of the moment” performing on acoustic instruments infectious tunes that, (better than any iPod ever could) get into your ear and straight into your tapping legs, clapping hands and snapping fingers.
That mixed bag of capturing timeless melodies that the seniors will recognize, the juniors will appreciate and the teenagers will hum, frequently is pigeonholed with the epithets of Manouche swing, Gypsy Jazz or simply World music, (whatever that means),… they just call it music.
Strong influence of musicians such as: Django Reinhardt, Stephan Grapelli, Bireli Lagrene, Florin Niculescu, Dorado and Tchavolo Schmitt, Angelo Debarre, Richard Galliano, Didier Lockwood, Stochelo Rosenberg, and composers - well known like Piazzola, Gardel and Monti as well as unknown ones that gave us some immortal traditional tunes.
