Les Doigts de l'Homme

Origin: France

Genre: Manouche jazz (Gypsy jazz)

Les Doigts de l'Homme started out as a Manouche trio, formed in Bretagne. In 2003 the group relocated to the Rhône-Alpes region, where it became a quartet, composed of Olivier Kikteff (guitar, oud, banjo, vocals), Tanguy Blum (double bass and electric bass), Yannick Alcocer (guitar and charango), and Benoît Convert (guitar).With time, they began to blend rock, world and chanson with their more traditional Gypsy Swing repertoire. In 2010, they returned to their roots, releasing 1910 (Alma Records), their fourth album and an homage to the master of Manouche music, Django Reinhardt, in the centennial year of his birth. In 2011, they take their show on the road to the U.S., Canada, Malaysia, Germany and Russia.
