Hungarian jazzband Swing á la Django performing in Tallinn (12.12, 7pm in Kumu) and Haapsalu (13.12, 7pm in Haapsalu Culture Centre) during Christmas Jazz!

 

Swing à la Django is an innovative six-membered band, which has showed its talents many times in Hungary and abroad as well. They have created a special style-mix in their music with the harmony of authentic Hungarian music, French chansons, world manouche swing, tango and jazz. This has resulted in a unique style, that they call Hungarian swing django. At their concerts they go back to the roots, their music is inspired by Django Reinhardt, the greatest Belgian-born gypsy-jazz guitarist, and they try to follow the footsteps of Reinhardt to evoke the atmosphere of the 30s-40s.

The members of the band have already traveled around the world with the group Besh’o’drom, the Budapest Klezmer Band and the Dohnányi Symphonic Orchestra.

 

Successful concerts, solidary band 

They scored great success with their full house, sold-out concerts in the Palace of Arts (MÜPA) in Budapest, together with the Dohnányi Symphonic Orchestra from Budafok, in Debrecen's Kölcsey Centre with the Kodály Philharmonic Orchestra, and in the Városmajor Open Air Theatre in Budapest, with Stochelo Rosenberg, Roby Lakatos and Bangó Margit.

Since their formation the band has been a solidary entity based on spiritual and musical friendship, and has given the most virtuoso concerts in the country and abroad as well, to the greatest joy of their ever growing crowd of fans.
