A few words about the band…

Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet(Spain, Quebec, France and California) playing music that, founder Javier Jiménez explains, “is inspired by the places we come from and the places we have lived, those that have come before us, and the nomadic Gypsy spirit. We believe that music is a primary form of expression, and we use it to describe the world as we see it. The band performs a repertoire of original instrumental compositions with a unique sound that it's difficult to classify but instantly recognizable, deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, to the hot jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli,The gypsy soul of east Europe, the flamenco of Paco de Lucía to the avant-garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane.
