Lollo Meier was joined on stage by Giacomo Smith during a couple of recent concerts and the outcome was so inspiring, that both decided to go for it once more.

Lollo Meier was raised on Gypsy swing from an early age. Lollo was born in an elite family of Gypsy players and is cousin to the great Fapy Lafertin and Stochelo Rosenberg. His goal: to carry on the music of Django, with a style and technique that’s traditional, melodious, lyrical, sensitive and joyful. His mellifluous compositions have a refreshing authentic Django flavour and are played with extraordinary talent, unique style and amazing suppleness that clearly reflects that he plays the music he loves. A man of style, grace and humour. Lollo’s pure melodious playing touches his audiences and makes Django’s music as fresh today as it was 80 years ago. Out of 15.000 world entries in the 2005 International Song Writing competition, Nashville USA, Lollo Meier became a finalist with Melody for Le QuecumBar. Lollo performs mainly with his own Quartet, but many international awarded musicians love to share the stage with this remarkable musician.

Italian-born, New Jersey-bred saxophonist and clarinet player extraordinaire, Giacomo Smith heads up a crew of some of the best musicians on the London scene, the Kansas Smittys, playing the swinging beat of Kansas City jazz with a contemporary beat, drawing influence from soul and jazz icons from Count Basie to James Brown to Wynton Marsalis.
