Formed out of a love for the legendary partnership of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grapelli, Cigány Weaver are one of Australia’s most exciting gypsy-jazz ensembles. Their virtuosic and energetic live performances invoke everything from subtle toe-tapping to exuberant dance floor foot-stomping.
Their sound is reminiscent of jazz Manouche, traditional swing and Romani music, interwoven with contemporary material from artists like Bjork, and the band’s reinterpretations of classics from popular culture.
With regular appearances in Brisbane’s most popular music venues, Cigány Weaver continue to make their stamp on the city’s vibrant live music scene and cement their place as one of Australia’s must-see bands
The band has performed at major festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, MONA’s Dark Mofo (TAS), Wallaby Creek Festival (FNQ) and Cullulleraine Music Festival (SA).
