A repertoire of swing, choro and compositions, full of divergent and surprising soundscapes.
Fapy Lafertin, guitar maestro of the Gypsy Jazz world, is surrounded in this brand-new original project by Belgian musicians from the latest generation: Alexandre Tripodi on violin, Renaud Dardenne on guitar and Cédric Raymond on bass. They perform with great finesse a repertoire of swing, choro and own compositions, full of divergent and surprising soundscapes. Fapy Lafertin, known for his very delicate and expressive interpretations, will also play the unique instrument that is the Portuguese guitar.

Fapy Lafertin is undoubtedly one of the most important and purest representatives of the Django style. Growing up in a community of musicians, this virtuoso very quickly became a devout follower of the music of Django Reinhardt. He played in various musical combos (WASO, QHCF ...) before embarking on a solo career and performing on different stages throughout Europe and the United States. He co-starred with renowned American jazz musicians such as Charlie Byrd, Scott Hamilton, Al Casey, Milt Hinton and Benny Waters. Lafertin has an amazing guitar technique while always keeping the melody in mind. He has not turned out to be a prisoner of the past by following Django's style. On the contrary, he makes Django’s music sound more modern than ever before.
