Internationally acclaimed Occidental Gypsy plays an exhilarating blend of gypsy, jazz and folk music that enraptures the listener with a complex acoustic sound, burnished by smooth vocals reminiscent of the first era of swing. Their pioneering approach to Gypsy music pays homage to Django Reinhardt and expands the genre to include elements of western (Occidental) sounds and rhythms, including blues, Klezmer and Latin. Their original songs are deeply complex and challenging to execute, and are often considered a natural evolution of Reinhardts sounds were he still alive today. Their energetic shows have garnered them fans among the most discerning musicians, and new gypsy lovers alike.
Occidental Gypsy will perform new original pieces and classic covers from their latest CD "44070," including two historically-based human rights songs, which feel relevant today.
44070/Song for Vrba is a tribute and musical illustration of the escape of Rudof Vrba and Alfred Wetzler from the Auschwitz concentration camp during WWII. Subsequent to the escape , the two men compiled a report describing the mass executions occurring at the camp and therefore was able to halt deportations from Budapest saving upwards of 100,000 people.
