The all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of 1930’s Django Reinhardt-inspired gypsy swing. Composer and lead guitarist Gonzalo Bergara mixes a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina. Bergara’s music exists in a way that very little music does. . It has weight, density, gravity. This is serious… and deeply moving.
