Here is a group we would love to see play at Samois
Excellent instrumentalists, swing with a mediterranean flavor.
The musicianship is exceptional along with the recording quality. Too many jazz albums these days are polite sounding to the point of being inoffensive wallpaper music, but not this one. There is a good mix of instrumental and vocal tracks for variety. I highly recommend this album.

Greek-flavored gypsy jazz.

Gadjo Dilo are a unique music group created with the sole purpose of reanimating the manouche gypsy jazz musical tradition. Their source of inspiration is the great gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, characterized by all great jazz musicians – without exception- as a genius.
Django’s artistic and personal journey and the old jazz sounds of the 30’s and 40’s are listed by Gadjo Dilo as their basic influences. In their first two albums, “Manouche de grec” (2013) and “Manouche de grec vol.II” (2016), they try to explore their love for Django, as well as their love for the older Greek songs.

“We like to believe that with our music we contribute a little something to the beauty that surrounds us. This human need is larger than familiarity. Besides, this particular musical genre has largely influenced the 50s and 60s Greek music scene, thus becoming familiar to the Greek audiences”.

A few carrier highlights: their tour in Germany in 2015 which included appearances in Sommer Festival Der Kulturen (Stuttgart) and Radeberger Open Air (Munich) and their performances in two of the largest Balkan Jazz Festivals in 2013: they headlined Bansko International Jazz Festival 2013 and were the first Greek band to participate in Nisville International Jazz Festival 2013 sharing the stage with international artists such as Ron Carter, Nouvelle Vague, Kyle Eastwood Band, Bobby Carcasses and Jazzanova.​ In the summer of 2014 they shared the stage with legendary greek singer Mary Linda at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a show that has been recorded and released in a double LP.
