Barrio Manouche

BARRIO MANOUCHE is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brasil and California) playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artists from around the globe.

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

The band performs a repertoire of original instrumental compositions with a unique sound that it’s difficult to classify but instantly recognizable. The music of Barrio Manouche is 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, nods to the gypsy soul of eastern Europe, a flare of the flamenco of Paco de Lucía and hints of the avant-garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane.
