A rare chance to see and hear the exceptional guitarist who composed the main themes of Woody Allen’s films Midnight in Paris and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Originally from Fontainebleau, France, Stephane Wrembel has lived in the United States for twenty years. His inimitable sound offers gypsy jazz of the highest caliber, drawing on the legendary Django Reinhardt's vast repertoire and compositions. This is music for the soul, inspired by baroque, impressionist, jazz and rock influences, with accents of Gabor Szabo and even Baden Powell.
For this special concert, Stephane and his band will welcome guitarist François Rioux, member of the Lost Fingers and a Quebec master in gipsy music. A guitar tsunami
