“Simply the best Gypsy band in the land!” (SMH) Monsieur Camembert will be getting festive, spicing up their Gypsy-inspired brew with some Klezmorized carols and smatterings of seasonal silliness!!! With sensitivity, virtuosity, & extraordinary energy, Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weave Gypsy music with other World Music styles, to create a truly original and intoxicating blend. From Russian Gypsy songs, to tango and klezmer, from Gypsy swing to Latin grooves, “they pick you up & carry you on a wave of energy, excitement & poignancy that never relents. The band play with such cohesion, energy & abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation.” (John Shand, SMH) “Klezmorized carols & other fun and frivolity as this 3x ARIA-winning 6-piece band brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with tango, klezmer, swing, Latin & jazz for the ultimate Christmas/Hanukkah party! Bring your Cossack boots & prepare to dance” (The Age).
