Artists by Musical Genre

Manouche jazz (also known as gypsy jazz) flourished in France in the first half of the 20th century, sprung from the marriage between American jazz and gypsy culture. Its leading lights were guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli. With Reinhardt's passing in 1953, his disciples continued to advance the genre, passing the torch to new generations of gypsy musicians whose collective approach was steeped in a respect for tradition.
