Mishra's Dream

Mishra's Dream


It is hard not to be taken by the irresistible intensity and drive of gypsy jazz. In the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli are Mishra's Dream, an acoustic quintet that brings to life French jazz from the 1940's with beautiful ballads and energetic and upbeat dance tunes.


Mishra's Dream is the collaboration of several different musical backgrounds forming a high-energy landscape of jazz standards and gypsy melodies. The acoustic quintet is excellent at adapting to the situation, be it a theatre setting, conference dinner or packed jazz club. In the legacy of Reinhardt and Grappelli with their Hot Club Quintet, other influences include the Rosenberg Trio, Bireli Lagrene, Angelo Debarre, and the Tarafs de Haidouks, among others. From barns to theaters, cafes to restaurants, bars to concert halls, Mishra's Dream have delighted many audiences with their emotional and driving style of jazz, and look forward to their first album release in the near future.


Several demo tracks featured on CBC radio 1 Cape Breton afternoon programming, and a featured artist in 2007 on the CJFX radio program "Sounds Atlantic."
