ABOUT THE ARTIST

Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world. A master in the manouche, or Gypsy jazz, tradition, the breadth and range of his playing and compositions make him one of the most original voices in contemporary music. He has headlined Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall in New York City and The Lyon Opera House in France.

Born in Paris and raised in Fontainebleau, the home of Impressionism and Django Reinhardt, his breakthrough came with his original composition “Bistro Fada,” a Django-influenced swinging waltz that became the theme song for the Oscar-winning film Midnight in Paris. It was included on the Grammy-winning soundtrack for the film, and Wrembel performed the irresistibly catchy tune live at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Now considered one of the preeminent master guitarists in the world specialized in the Django Reinhardt style, Wrembel revels in transcending and expanding. His music incorporates jazz, blues, classical, swing, flamenco and rock. All of these influences come together as a genre identifiable only as Stephane Wrembel. “I just play my own music,” he says. “I like to believe that it is beyond any one genre and that there is something in it for everyone. It’s not only for Django lover or jazz lover. It’s for the music lover.”
