Please note: This is a Dance Floor/standing show.

Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-Based international Septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California), playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artist from all over the globe.

The band performs a repertoire of original, mostly instrumental compositions with a unique sound that it’s difficult to classify but instantly recognizable, deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, to the Hot Jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, the Gypsy soul of Eastern Europe, the Nuevo Flamenco of Paco de Lucía and Camarón de la Isla to the Avant-Garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane.

The ensemble has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and their passion for their musical improvisation.

Barrio Manouche makes a new form of Americana, if you will, where flamenco guitar drifts above Brazilian beats, clashing with Gypsy-jazz melodies.
