Original Title Chemanush
Country Argentina



With guitarist Django Reinhardt as its main representative, gypsy jazz has always been an irresistible magnet for musicians and audiences alike. The group Chemanush continues the tradition of this vibrant and upbeat music, but bringing the style of the 1940s up to date. The band was created in 2012, when guitarists Germán Prieto and Lucas Turquie returned to the country after a long stint in Europe and teamed up with double-bass player Lionel Mortola to perform a repertoire also influenced by Oscar Alemán. Their performance will feature violinist Sophie Lüssi as guest artist.
