Benoit Viellefon and His Orchestra  

Benoit Viellefon Hot Club:
1920’s to 1940’s Gypsy swing, French music, Hot swing

Benoit Viellefon is proud to present his “Hot Club”. The ensemble is inspired by the hot swinging music that emerged from the infamous Parisian Cafes and nightclubs of the 1920s & 1930s.
The Hot Club put on a show which celebrates both the romanticism of the finest musettes and waltzes from the French tradition and the burning excitement of those hot gypsy swing numbers made famous by Django Reinhardt. The perfect mix of European finesse and the restless fervor of American swing, the Hot Club are the modern-day embodiment of the spirit of a by-gone age. More info...

''London's own stompin' ragtime orchestra''
The Basin Street Brawlers bring to life the hottest stomps, rags and dixieland tunes from the roaring 1920's.
The Brawlers are a favourite on London's jazz and vintage music scenes, and can be found stompin' and wailin' through tunes by Louis Armstrong, 'Jelly Roll' Morton, and Sidney Bechet.The band love to play for both dancing and listening audiences and can be found just as often providing the soundtrack to stylish parties.

(Afro-carribean world music)

"Fimber Bravo and young Senegalese kora player Kadialy Kouyate found a common thread, and proceeded to weave it into a tapestry of multi-hued beauty..It really worked those two instruments (the steel pan and kora) coming together."
Andy Kershaw BBC Radio 3
