Inspired by the guitar player Django Reinhardt, Chapeau Manouche is known for its vibrant sinti swing. We are two guitars, a double bass and a violin and create a sweeping accoutic swing, melting a new style between the traditional sound of the early 20th and 30th and modern jazz arrangements.
Within the last few years, we have played on well known festivals, such as:
Summerjazz Festival/ Pinneberg (2010, winner of the music award), www.summerjazz.de
The International Rheingau Music Festival (in 2014 an 2015), www.rheingau-musik-festival.de
The Schleswig Holstein Music Festival (in 2016), www.shmf.de
Musiktage Salzgitter (2016), http://musiktage-salzgitter.de
