“Gadjo Dilo” is a unique band created with the sole purpose of reanimating the Manouche gypsy jazz musical tradition. Their source of inspiration is the great gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, characterized by all great jazz musicians – without exception- as a genius.
Django’s artistic and personal journey and the old jazz sounds of the 30s and 40s are listed by “Gadjo Dilo” as their basic influences. In their upcoming LP, entitled “Manouche de grec” they try to explore their love for Django, as well as their love for the older Greek songs.
To everybody who maintains that Greek people are not accustomed to this genre, “Gadjo Dilo” answers: "We like to believe that with our music we contribute a little something to the beauty that surrounds us. This human need is larger than familiarity. Besides, this particular musical genre has largely influenced the 50s and 60s Greek music scene, thus becoming familiar to the Greek audiences".
Following their summer tour 2013 in the Balkans, where they participated in two (2) of the largest Jazz Festivals (Bansko International Jazz Festival - in which they appeared as headliners - and Nisville International Jazz Festival ) start their winter performances with the presentation of their first album titled “Manouche De Grec”
