2ND ANNUAL NEW MEXICO DJANGOFEST
Albuquerque, NM, USA
October 19th ? 21st

After the success of last year?s Djangofest in Santa Fe, the New Mexico Gypsy Jazz celebration comes to Albuquerque this October. One of numerous Djangofest?s across the country, the three day festival includes both performances and educational workshops honoring the legacy of Django Reinhardt. The spirit of Djangofest brings together musicians and members of the community with both a reverence for the tradition of Gypsy Jazz (pioneered by Reinhardt?s Quintette du Hot Club de France in the 1930?s), and the ardor to develop the genre by incorporating modern musical evolutions.

Featuring:
-Howard Alden
-Le Chat Lunatique
-Mango fan Django
-Hot Club of Phoenix
-Carute Roma
-Hot Club of Santa Fe

with special guests: Felix y los Gatos, Pearl Handled Pistol, Sweet and Lowdown
