A rare opportunity and worth the effort to work with a true master of this style: Tcha is an inspirational teacher and rarely gets time for these work shops in the UK. He is happy to teach from basics to more advanced and has a wealth of information and experience to impart to any student enthusiastic and interested in this style. Tcha is a blind, multilingual multi-instrumentalist, Tcha has accomplishments that span violin, guitar, clarinet, and vocals. Born into a family of Gypsy musicians, he began performing with the De Piottos on clarinet, later swapping his clarinet for a guitar to play rhythm alongside Koen de Cauter in the ground-breaking Waso. At 17, he took up violin, inspired by stories of his grandfather, legendary violinist Piotto Limberger, and recordings from Hungarian Toki Horvat. Later, in Budapest, he studied classical and Gypsy music under Horvat Bela. He has worked closely with many Gypsy legends, including Fapy Lafertin and Angelo DeBarre. Tcha now lives in Transylvania and has set up a number of orchestras, in addition to making many recordings as a freelance instrumentalist. He also has students visit his home in Transylvania and is one of the hardest-working musicians on the scene. www.myspace.com/limbergertcha www.lejazzetal.com tcha.limberger@gmail.com

He has collaborated with Matcho Winterstein, Andreas Oberg, Yorgui Loeffler and other greats, touring Europe, the USA and Canada with his trio to rapturous welcomes.

Lollo was raised on Gypsy Swing from an early age and now a guitar master, composer, bandleader and arranger, Lollo comes from an elite family of Gypsy players and is cousin to the great Fapy Lafertin and Stochelo Rosenberg. His goal: to carry on the music of Django with a style and technique that?s traditional, melodious, lyrical, sensitive and joyful. His mellifluous compositions have a refreshing authentic Django flavour and are played with extraordinary talent, unique style and amazing suppleness that clearly reflect that he makes the music he loves. His quartet, sought after around the globe for private functions and renowned jazz festivals, is famous for playing lesser-known Django tunes and his own compositions. A man of style, grace and humour, Lollo touches his audiences with his pure melodious playing and makes Django?s music as fresh today as it was 80 years ago. Outside of performing, he spends much of his time teaching sought-after master-classes, sharing his artistry and passing down Django?s legacy. He is a remarkable man with a remarkable style of playing. Out of 15,000 international entries in the 2005 International Song Writing competition held in Nashville, USA, Lollo Meier became a finalist with ?Melody for Le QuecumBar,? gained honorary status and became part of the top 1.4% of entrants. "...Brilliancies came and went so fast that there was hardly time to applaud...", Jack Massarik, London Evening Standard; ?It felt like the legendary Django Reinhardt was performing again?, Zutphen Paper. www.lollomeier.nl www.myspace.com/lollomeier
