To commemorate 50 years without Django, Waso De Cauter gathered in 2003 some style experts to initiate the DjanGo! project. It turned out a huge success and the 100th birthday of Django was the perfect opportunity to do it all over again. DjanGo!! was born and an album was presented at Djangofolllies 2010. But Waso tought the cast was too interesting to let go, so he developed a new program, based on the 2010 repertoire: DjanGo-on.

Koen De Cauter stands for more than 40 years live music of great diversity and about 30 cd’s (not counting the many LP’s he recorded in the 70’s – 80’s) under his name. He started in 1975 the famous Waso Quartet (named after his first born) with Fapy Lafertin, what resulted in a true revival of the Hot Club music. Fapy Lafertin is definitely one of the most important and stylistic icons of the Django style.

And as tradition once was, Koen De Cauter passed the ‘craft’ onto his children. The family ensemble was created in 1990. What once started with only occasional gigs, became after a while the core of most of the activities of this exceptional family. Meanwhile Waso and Dajo are, after about 20 years on the road, very strong musical personalities on there own. Over the past year or so, Belgium-born clarinetist, Joachim Badenhorst, has become the one thee clarinetists to watch with some half dozen discs on different labels. Joachim has recorded with Simon Jermyn, Mogil, Os Meus and a fine trio with Mikkel Ploug and Sissel Vera Pettersen, who have a fabulous CD on Songlines. Joachim is now a member of Han Bennink's new trio.` Count on top the lyrical playing of Jon Birdsong, an American immigrant, and Lionel Beuvens on drums, and you will discover the prefect tribute to the music of Django Reinhardt.
