Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California), frequently joined by artists from around the globe. They have been recognized for their surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique and their passion for their musical improvisation. The band performs a repertoire of original instrumental compositions with a unique sound deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet to the hot jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, the Gypsy soul of eastern Europe and the flamenco of Paco de Lucía, to the avant-garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane.
