Hans Mortelmans & Group is an acoustic quartet formed in 2005 around songwriter-guitarist Hans Mortelmans. The music is inspired by the gypsy-swing of Django Reinhardt and the melodies of Georges Brassens.

At the Brosella Folk & Jazz festival 2012, they played together with their fellow musician and godfather of the group, guitarist Jokke Schreurs. Jokke, who has studied the Mississippi-blues and the music of Django Reinhardt, creates his own surprising and impressionist world with his guitar. Blues guitarist Marc Lelangue appeared to be an ideal guest on stage, with his acerbic wit and life-affirming sense of humour. Last guest is Django Reinhardt specialist, Koen De Cauter. The result was a Belgian hotpot of old blues, early jazz and Flemish songs. They are really looking forward to serve it once more...
