Join us for a night of Gypsy and Gypsy Swing music at Django At Camelot. A concert full of l’amour de la vie and musical virtuosity featuring Joseph Zarb (Marsala) performing in a stunning duo setting with master of authentic gypsy violin Tinel Dragoi, plus the Cameron Jones Trio.
For Gypsies, music is religion and music comes from faith and from the soul. So whether we are in Paris or Bucharest, playing Swing or Bolero. The soul of the music tastes the same. Tinel Dragoi is from Romania; Rom Gypsy Father, Romanian Jewish Mother. Violin was his only option in life. Jose lives his professional life on the streets of Sydney, Gypsy Style, playing on every street corner. The combination is like an electrical storm in the Bohemian Mountains.
Cameron Jones (Spyglass Gypsies, Gadjo Guitars) is musician who draws inspiration from the driving rhythms and melodic honesty of the acoustic gypsy jazz guitar. In 2018 Jones recorded The Waterfall Way, his first album under his name, an album that draws repertoire and inspiration from his travels to France and The Netherlands. Journeys to the very heart and soul of the gypsy jazz music.
“It was several years ago when I first saw and heard Cameron Jones play guitar with the superb Gypsy Swing group ‘Spyglass Gypsies”. I remember being most impressed with his understanding and execution of the Gypsy Swing style. Since then I’ve not only had the pleasure of watching him grow in stature both as a player and composer, but also of jamming with him at the OzManouche Festival.” Hank B Marvin
