How many musicians have a festival named after them?
Django Reinhardt is held in a special kind of awe not only for being such a great guitarist despite missing a few fingers but because he made music that combined many genres. Want to learn more about him? You can start from here and then listen to his music and finally, learn more about the Django Reinhardt Jazz Festival.
The organisers say:
“4 days of music, in the exceptional setting of the Château de Fontainebleau Park, to pay homage to the swing and modernity of the greatest jazz guitarist.
Young talents, emblematic figures of gypsy jazz, international artists, communicate around the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt.”
