We are excited and looking for record our first álbum, which is gonna be called "Between two worlds". With this music we are trying to open new ways of sounding in the Jazz Manouche style, bringing our own original compositions.
"Between two worlds" is the union of two concepts that have always been linked, jazz and Latin music, but mixed with the Jazz Manouche particular kind of sound.
In this new CD, that we expect to make it real with your help, we're gonna preserve the spirit of you great jazz figures, Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli, such an unique duo for the balance between emotivity and the swing of their compositions.
