Django Reinhardt Renaissance in Detroit

Django Reinhardt's music is enjoying a bit of a renaissance in Detroit and elsewhere in the United States. Links are provided below to a couple of Django Reinhardt gypsy jazz groups currently popular in Detroit--Hot Club of Detroit and The Gypsy Strings. I'm sure you will enjoy the You Tube videos of Django and the revival groups.

Is there any other footage of Django available for purchase, and if so where can I find it. Thanks for

making this clip available. I enjoyed it immensely.

I found the one above with a Google search. There's quite a bit of Django material around including some CDs I believe.

Thanks so much for putting up this video clip which I found using Google.  I didn't know who Django was, just that there is a visual reference to him in the first part of the movie "Les Triplettes de Belleville." How cool to find out more!  And can that guy play with only two fingers on his left hand. Wow!

Wow, wonderful video's, I've always loved Django's guitar playing, I ever tried to study it for a while, but never had the patients. I can strum the chord progressions but the lead stuff takes a very special talent.

My dad spoke of Django occasionally through the years. One idle moment on the net and bingo! Uniquely brilliant sound. Well done to you!!
