Fourth edition of Django L’H Festival dedicated to Gipsy Jazz, a style of jazz borned in the early 30s in France. Virtuoso guitar player Django Reinhardt is it’s most important figure.
We’re a group of Gipsy Jazz lovers who try to keep alive the spirit of Django Reinhardt by doing the Festival each year.
This Festival is the first and the only one in Spain exclusively dedicated to Gipsy Jazz. The Festival occurs between the cities of Barcelona and L’Hospitalet de Llobregat.
Some of the best musicians of the style has come to our last editions, including: Brady Winterstein Trio, Les Doights de l’Homme, Robin Nolan,...
This year we still believe in programming the best, that’s why Tchavolo Schmitt is visiting us, one of the most authentic guitar player, with huge personality, technique and powerful playing.
As always, we support and program local musicians to try to make the scene grow. This year we’ll have Pere Soto and his project Django’s Castle and Albert Bello & Oriol Saña - Experiment and their recreation of the great Quintette du Hot Club de France.
A part from the concerts, we’ll have masterclasses, talks, dance lessons, jam sessions…
For the very first time, this year we’ll raffle a Gipsy Guitar special edition from the Festival. A very special guitar made by Spanish luthier Gerónimo Mateos with a value of 2000€.
