““That’s one of the reasons I do the music, is to embrace the diversity,” Uriarte says. “I do Gypsy jazz. It is jazz, and it is a language that can be fully understood here. But I still like the idea that it’s not entirely from here. For me, it’s perfect. It helps me unify those things."”

“Kukuly and the Gypsy Fuego have been gaining a solid audience in Knoxville for the group’s combination of gypsy jazz and Latin music.”

“Kukuly Uriarte, the Peruvian-by-way-of-Buenos-Aires bandleader, plays Django-style jazz guitar, mostly on old standards from the ’30s and ’40s, plus a few Latin American numbers, mambos, tangos, bossa novas.”
