Gypsophilia

Gypsophilia

Halifax, Nova-Scotia

Seven-piece Halifax-based Gypsophilia plays instrumental music that straddles the line between jazz and world music. The band started in 2004 as a Django Reinhardt tribute, but soon began mixing gypsy jazz with klezmer, funk, as well as Jamaican, Balkan and Brazilian sounds, composing original music, and selling out shows all over Canada and the US. Their killer live shows and danceable, genre-bending sound have made them an audience favourite at major festivals and small clubs alike. With a combination of serious musicianship, humour, and showmanship, they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment, and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing, frenzy the next.musicnovascotia
