DARIO NAPOLI MODERN MANOUCHE PROJECT
Imagine Django Reinhardt regaining use of all 5 fingers and hooking up with Jaco Pastorius: hot, electric, funky, semi acoustic swing! Although sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt is the main inspiration behind the Modern Manouche Project, Sicilian-born and Milan-based bandleader & guitarist Dario Napoli includes elements of more modern musical styles such as bebop, funk and modern jazz in his version of gypsy swing, which has been featured at some of the most prestigious jazz and gypsy jazz festivals and venues, Royal Liverpool Philarmonic, Pizza Express Live, Django Amsterdam Festival (Bimhuis), Djangofollies Festival, Django in June, as well as Cully Jazzfest, Eddie Lang Jazzfest, Pisa Jazz, Valdarno Jazz, etc. The result is an unpredictable and exuberant sound, which steals from various musical eras leading you you through a rich and vibrant sonic experience, without ever totally abandoning the gypsy imprint of Django.
