On the occasion of the Days of Sinti and Roma Culture in Bucharest, Dotschy Reinhardt, Sinteza – a descendant of the great jazz legend Django Reinhardt, is coming on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at ARCUB – Gabroveni Inn for a gypsy jazz concert, with the French guitarist Christian Escoudé and the Romanian violinist Florin Niculescu. The concert is organized by Goethe Institut Bucharest in partnership with ARCUB in the first edition of „Djelem! Come on! – Days of Sinti and Roma Culture” in Bucharest.
For the concert at ARCUB, the three musicians from Germany and France prepared sounds and unique Sinti and gypsy jazz rhythms. For the first time in Romania, the artist and activist for human rights Dotschy Reinhardt, Sinteza is the youngest descendant of Django Reinhardt, the founder of gypsy jazz. Django’s explicit language so inspired me.
Reinhardt, as well as the Sinti cultural heritage, his music reflects the origins and history of his people. Equally marked by the swing style of Django Reinhardt, the exceptional French Christian guitarist Escoudé performs in Bucharest alongside Dotschy Reinhardt, Sinteza. The jazz artist of Roma origin has performed with big names of the jazz and rock scene, such as John McLaughlin, Stan Getz and Pierre Michelot, and is known for contemporary interpretations of Django’s pieces, Reinhardt. Along with the two artists, one of the best takes the stage at ARCUB today’s gypsy jazz violinist, Florin Niculescu. Christian’s close associate Escoudé, the Roma artist of Romanian origin, went from a career as a classical violinist to a musician of gypsy jazz and performer of traditional Roma music.
