Hot Club D'AfriqueLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Hot Club D'Afrique is an all-acoustic gypsy jazz band that recreates the romantic sound of Paris in the 1930s. The "French Cafe" sound which has been popularised by popular films such as Chocolat and Ratatouille, is embraced and built on by this passionate group.
The outfit takes its name from the original "Quintette du Hot Club De France" founded by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
Hot Club D'Afrique's repertoire features 1930's and current gypsy jazz standards, original compositions by Hot Club D'Afrique, as well as classic and contemporary French and English ballads.
