An outstanding interpreter of early European Jazz of the 1930’s and 40’s, in the style of the Quintette du Hot Club de France, Daisy Castro has emerged as a revitalizing force for the genre, stunning first time audience members, and continuing to enthrall even those that have seen her perform many times before. Her dynamic playing channels some of the early greats, while adding a modern edge to the Jazz Manouche tradition created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in Jazz Age Paris.
Daisy has been an active member of the “Gypsy Jazz” community both in the United States and in Europe since she was 14 years old. She has played on stages on both continents with all of the masters. Now, with three recordings of this style under her belt, she has earned the respect of said masters and their knowledgeable audiences, which is no small feat in this heavily male dominated genre.
For this tour, she will be joined by guitarists who each have their own long lists of accomplishments, awards, and international touring experience. The quartet will be promoting Daisy’s project, World On Fire. While still rooted in the same style as her earlier recordings, Gypsy Moth(2010) and Déviation(2013), this one reaches even further around the globe for it’s influences. Encompassing everything from Django compositions to traditional Turkish and Greek tunes, it opens up a whole new world of exploration for these fantastic young musicians. The energy created when they come together is quite impressive. It is always a treat for audiences to see this kind of dedication manifest onstage. They are all happy to be among the new generation of players helping to bring this beautiful music from the past into the future.
