International top players

Top players from the international gypsy jazz world will unite for the sixth edition of Django Amsterdam.

Friday night opens with the energetic trio of Dennis Pol. This young Greek-Italian guitarist Pol is quickly making a name for himself. With a retro swing manouche vibe coupled with a modern approach, his latest album New York City blazes through a repertoire of both Reinhardt and original compositions.

Legend of gypsy jazz Dorado Schmitt will appear in a rare performance in The Netherlands, at Django Amsterdam. His magical guitar and violin playing was featured in Tony Gatliff’s award winning film Latcho Drom. His son Amati is regarded by many as the leading young gypsy guitarist around.

Tonight the dazzling father and son team will be joined by rhythm guitar monster Martin Limberger and double bass phenomenon Sani Van Mullem. Prior to the concerts the guitar duo of Ian Date and Jan de Jong will provide a lyrical and swinging ambiance at the BIMHUIS restaurant. After the show everyone is invited to dance at the late night jam session featuring the Dennis Pol Acoustic Trio.
