Gadji-Gadjo

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Genres: Manouche jazz (Gypsy jazz), World

Inspired by East-European culture and music, Montréal sextet Gadji-Gadjo offers an eclectic blend of Gypsy jazz and klezmer, mixed in with the group's own traditional Quebec musical heritage. Founded in 2002 by accordionist Mélanie Bergeron, the group's other core members are Pascal "Per" Veillette (harmonica), Pierre-Olivier Dufresne (violin), Jean Desrochers (guitar), Mathieu Deschenaux (bass) and Ivan Bamford (percussions). Since the release of their self-titled debut in 2005, Gadji-Gadjo has played to enthusiastic crowds in Romania, North America, France and Canada. In 2007, the band released a successful second CD, Sur le toit des voisins, bringing home the title of "Best World Album" that same year at Quebec's independent music awards (GAMIQ). A third album is expected for 2011.
