Rooftop Sunset Session: Gypsy Jazz Ft. Bali Gypsy Fire
Bali Gypsy Fire is the one and only gypsy jazz band in Indonesia. The band was founded by a young guitarist from Bali "Gatot Yudiantoro" in 2012.
Finding inspiration from Gypsy Jazz greats such as Django Rheinhart, they play traditional Gypsy jazz music, better known as Gypsy Manouche, as well classic Jazz standards interpreted with the gypsy swing rhythm. They also play a number of their own compositions, written with the authentic characteristics of the Manouche style.
Bali Gypsy Fire originally consisted of only two acoustic guitars and double bass, but has now grown with the addition of new instruments, namely drums and alto sax, to enrich and slightly modernize their sound. They can still play in trio format or the full sextet, depending on what's appropriate for the occasion.
