Occidental Gypsy pioneers an exhilarating blend of gypsy swing, jazz and world music that enraptures the listener with a complex acoustic sound, burnished by smooth vocals reminiscent of the first era of swing.
The band has an original approach to Gypsy Jazz that pays homage to Django and expands the genre to include elements of western (Occidental) sounds, including blues, Klezmer and Latin. The quintet features Eli Bishop on violin. Bishop performs regularly at Lincoln Center, and enthralls audiences as the current Guinness Book of World Records fastest clapper.
