Ameranouche is an award winning Gypsy jazz trio that churns up a blazing whirlwind of exhilarating and uplifting hot acoustic swing. They sail through melodious tunes with love, musicality and signature jaw-dropping velocity. Veterans of the famed Newport Jazz Festival, Nouche’s original music is inspired by legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt. "In my opinion, more than an exceptional form of Gypsy oriented jazz, Ameranouche is a capture of joyfulness itself." - Pat Martino The Luminescent Orchestrii plays Romanian melodies, punk frenzy, salty tangos, hard-rocking klezmer, hip-hop beats and Appalachian fiddle... all eaten and spit out by two violins, resophonic guitar, bullhorn harmonica and bass. Their members come from different NYC scenes yet join together through their love of Balkan and Gypsy music. The Orchestrii has performed on a diverse range of stages ranging from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to the Knitting Factory to Serbia's DragoÄ evo Trumpet Festival.
