An outstanding interpreter of early European Jazz of the 1930’s and 40’s, in the style of the Quintette du Hot Club de France, led by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli, Daisy Castro has emerged as a revitalizing force for the genre,stunning first time audience members, and continuing to enthrall even those that have seen her perform
many times before. Her dynamic playing channels some of the early greats, while adding a modern edge to the Jazz Manouche tradition.
Today the quartet performed “Djelem Djelem,” a traditional piece that demonstrates their appreciation for world music in the modern age.
You can see the full performance in the video above. Below is our interview with Daisy.
