Django Reinhardt is commonly considered as the most influential personality that European Jazz has ever produced. Thanks to his improvisations on the guitar, this Gypsy made a major contribution to Jazz. His performances were characterized by unmatched intensity. Even today, he remains a model for many of the world’s greatest guitar players.
Brosella initiated the first Djangofolllies to honour the memory of this great artist in 1994, at the initiative of Koen De Cauter. Since then, Brosella has celebrated Django’s birthday annually, to the delight of fans of this kind of music whose thirst for it remained unsatisfied.
In the meantime, Djangofolllies has become a significant and major event in its category, to the great joy of both the aficionados of the ‘Django’ style and the curious newcomers.
Artists invited in 2016 are Fapy Lafertin, Florin Niculescu Trio, Jokke Schreurs Quartet, Lamoral, Les Violons de Bruxelles, Minor Sing, Quinn Bachand’s Brishen, The Belgian Gypsy Swing & Dorado Schmitt en Vano Bamberger Quintet.
