Caravan Palace

Issue No. 2243

Django Reinhardt’s swinging jazz is brought up to date by French group Caravan Palace, who mix his gypsy music with synthesised dance beats.

Within their chosen space, they manage a varied sound, with each of the many tracks distinct.

They mix guitar, clarinet, trombone and DJ decks. Their music’s fusion of club beats with traditional styles recalls the Gotan Project’s tango fusion.
