Stephane Wrembel is one of the most highly regarded guitarists in the world specializing in the style
of legendary composer/guitarist Django Reinhardt; he learned his craft among the Gypsies at
campsites in the French countryside. He has had a remarkable career, touring the world, while
releasing 16 albums under his name and the nom de plume, The Django Experiment. His original
compositions have been featured in Woody Allen’s Vicki Cristina Barcelona (“Big Brother”) and
Midnight in Paris (“Bistro Fada”). He contributed the original score for Rifkin’s Festival (starring
Wallace Shawn, Gina Gershon and Christophe Waltz) released on January 28, 2022. In October of
2019, Wrembel released the highly regarded Django L’Impressionniste, featuring 17 of Reinhardt’s
preludes for solo guitar, followed by a book of his transcriptions in April of 2021. Since 2003,
Wrembel has produced the Django a Gogo Festival, bringing together some of the finest musicians
in the world to celebrate the Sinti guitar style to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie
Hall and The Town Hall. His program, Django New Orleans, sold out 8 shows at Dizzy’s Club at
Jazz at Lincoln Center in November of 2021. His new program, Shades of Django, will be
presented in PACs around the country in the fall of 2022, including 2 nights in the Rose Theater at
Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Wrembel’s band includes: Josh Kaye, guitar; Ari Folman-Cohen, bass; and Nick Anderson, drums.
"Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today, Mr. Wrembel plays the guitar with a rich
and colorful lyricism." – New York Times
“Stephane Wrembel just might be the greatest acoustic guitarist alive.”—The Aquarian
"For North Americans, Stephane Wrembel represents the living face of gypsy jazz."--New York
"...a true gypsy guitar master. His band of accomplished artists unveiled a seemingly effortless,
unspoken musical thread, and shared an untouchable virtuoso mastery of an underappreciated genre
of jazz. Wrembel’s clear passion, superb tonality and stunning finger work make the most mind-
blowing guitar lines appear elementary...A wonderful celebration of pure musical spirit." –Music
“The mind-bendingly rapid melodies Stephane provided to the set’s final song were an exclamation
point for an audience that was enthralled for 60 minutes of unforgettable music.”—Parklife DC
