Cigány Weaver with Monsieur Swing
Thursday, April 19 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Cigány Weaver are one of Australia’s most exciting gypsy-jazz ensembles who’s virtuosic and energetic live performances invoke everything from subtle toe-tapping to exuberant dance floor foot-stomping. Their sound is reminiscent of jazz Manouche, traditional swing and Romani music, interwoven with contemporary material from artists like Bjork, and the band’s reinterpretations of classics from popular culture.
Monsieur Swing are a 5-piece Gypsy-swing troupe from Adelaide. They perform a blend of traditional manouche, new arrangements of old favourites and compositions of their own to play their part in the developing manouche culture within Australia. The members come from a rich assortment of musical backgrounds and include members (past and present) of God God Damn it Damn it, the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra.
