Steve Gibons Gypsy Rhythm Project

Steve Gibons Gypsy Rhythm Project

 Chicago, Illinois, USA
BandWorldJazz

Gypsy Rhythm Project Chicago's go-to group for stripped-down, old-fashioned Roma music- they bring the improvisational sophistication of jazz to Romanian and Bulgarian Gypsy music without smoothing out its ragged edges.

Biography

Jazz violinist Steve Gibons leads this unique Eastern-Western Chicago group. Along with the sophisticated jazz stylings of guitarist Mike Allemana (Von Freeman) and drummer Tim Mulveena (ex–Vandermark 5), cimbalom guru Nicolae Feraru and accordion virtuoso Juliano Milo bring their worldly background. Romanian Gypsy culture has one of the richest musical legacies in the world, full of jazz harmonies and booty-twitching rhythms.
