Gonzolo Bergara Quartet


The all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired gypsy jazz. Composer and lead guitarist Gonzalo Bergara mixes a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina. His first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine, and Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a "masterpiece." They newest CD pick best CD of the year by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. The music is heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and music of Bergara's true home, Buenos Aires. "Gonzalo Bergara’s music exists in a way that very little music does. He has lavished such care on every phrase, built each arrangement with such lapidary precision and pared away anything extraneous, the music becomes sculpture. It has weight, density, gravity. This is serious….and deeply moving. The GBq has been named the best thing that happened to Gypsy Jazz in the last 20 years by the most important Gypsy Jazz Festival in the world, The Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois, France.

Bina Coquet Trio


Bina Coquet presentes a unique repertoire that mixes brazilian songs with his own compositions - Pé de Valsa, Se Tu Se Achas, and Xote de Manouche, among others.  He demonstrates a universe where creativity and virtuosity come together to create a pleasant and surprising experience for the audience.  Coquet can turn Django’s guitar into a cavaquinho, make the bass line of Dino 7 cordas, drum as Baden Powell, cry like a mandolin of Jacob or whisper in João Gilberto’s hit.  The important thing is that in this melting pot of accents and styles, everyone can dance and have fun with "la pompe" of Bina Coquet’s trio.

Fernando Seifarth (gypsy guitar) and Seo Manouche (bass) will accompany Bina Coquet in DJANGO NORTHWEST 2018.
