Brisbane Powerhouse and French Gypsy Jazz Inc present
Brisbane Gypsy Jazz Festival 2012
Wed 15 - Thu 16 Aug 2012
After the success of its first season in 2010, the Gypsy Jazz Festival returns in August for more high-energy music.
During two nights, Gypsy Jazz and traditional Balkan music will be revisited by modern artists to offer you an explosive, attractive and exciting repertoire.
Beginning the evening and filling the intervals, DJ Tagada, founder of the BALKANS BEATS PARIS, mixes for you a subtle blend of tradition and modernism.
Internationally acclaimed, the French quartet Les Doigts de l’Homme follows on with a flamboyant performance. They integrate rock, world music and gypsy elements with impressive speed and sensitivity.
Loulou Djine closes the night and offers heartrending laments and fast and furious rhythms by revisiting traditional Balkan music in a passionate expression.
If you loved the first edition of the festival, get prepared for some frantic evenings again.
Duration: Powerhouse Theatre 3hrs 20mins with intervals
Please Note: DJ Tagada will be playing on the Turbine Platform before the event, during interval and afterwards for free.
