Raised on Gypsy Swing from an early age, Lollo Meier is a master guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger; Lollo comes from an elite family of Gypsy musicians and is cousin to two of the greatest guitarists of the genre; Fapy Lafertin and Stochelo Rosenberg. His goal: to carry on the music of Django Reinhardt, 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 reflects that he makes music he loves. His Quartet is sought after around the globe and is famous for playing the lesser-known Reinhardt tunes and his own compositions. A man of style, grace and humour, Lollo’s pure melodious playing touches his audiences and makes Django’s music as fresh today as it was 80 years ago.
