Hot club jazz, gypsy swing—en francais, "jazz manouche"—call it what you may, mon ami, you’ll recognize the spiritual-musical grandchildren of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli in the jumping, bouncing, gliding elegance of hipster world music ensemble Paris Combo, the internationally-acclaimed quintet featuring chanteuse Belle du Berry. Behind her vocal stylings strum and bow and plunk four handsome and talented fellas of “gypsy” (Roma), African and French extraction and temperament. Instantly feel thinner, sexier and more sophisticated snapping your fingers to Paris Combo live, promoting their newest album, Attraction, at our local Buddhist university—BYOG (Bring your own Gauloises).
