The London Django Collective was born out of the desire to create a local and innovative forum for musicians influenced by the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt. Gypsy jazz has always had a place in the hearts of revivalists and traditionalists, but the Collective have a vision of true progression for the style whilst nodding to the great musicians who came before them.
After a series of EP releases showcasing each members’ original music in late 2019 the Collective are back, fresh after lockdown, with new music. Featuring some of the best gypsy jazz musicians in London, their releases have been held to high acclaim, played on BBC radio and listened to all over the world. Come to explore the spirit of Django and see the flare and swing the band brings to the London Jazz Scene!
