DJANGO A GOGO ROCHESTER 2023: THE 20th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!
Django à Gogo is a music festival dedicated to Django Reinhardt, one of the greatest Gypsy guitarists who ever lived. The festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary and will feature a series of concerts with the Stephane Wrembel band from NYC.
They will be joined by very special guests from France: Simba Baumgartner, who is none other than Django Reinhardt’s grandson and a terrific virtuoso in his own right, and Aurore Voilqué on violin, who is simply an incredible musician and the most in-demand violinist in France today.
They will also be joined by 20-year-old guitar virtuoso Sam Farthing from Baltimore, and Bobby Henrie, the great guitar master located in Ithaca, NY. There will be guitar workshops as well, open to all levels and ages. All info is listed at www.Stephanewrembel.com.

DJANGO A GOGO 2023: 20TH ANNIVERSARY PRESENTS
DJANGO REINHARDT AND THE GYPSIES:
A 1000-YEAR MUSICAL JOURNEY FROM INDIA TO FRANCE
On the first night, Thursday October 12, titled “From India to early Django”, the band will start by exploring the sounds of India, the Middle Eastern and North African oud, showing how these are the very roots of it all. They will then demonstrate how Eastern European folk traditions (Tziganes and Klezmer) and Western European classical music came into play to form the next level of the harmonic framework for Django’s unique style. This was followed by the musette and early Jazz influences. Thus, Django the musician was born.
