From the drama of French Chanson to the hot swing of French jazz and New Orleans, La Luna perform upbeat, gypsy jazz and swing par excellence.

La Luna and her Gadjos recreate music born in the Parisien hot clubs of the 1930’s in the style of Django Reinhardt with an authentic, uplifting gypsy feel. Their repertoire is a great mix of playful, Django tunes, songs by Trenet, Gainsbourg and the drama of Edith Piaf, with the sounds of New Orleans jazz.

La Luna Gyspy Swing feature an international NZ line up of key musicians who have performed in many different situations at private and public events such as Music in Parks, Titirangi Festival, Hamilton Gardens Festival, Alliance Francaise Music Festival,  Vintage Markets. La Luna’s gorgeous vocals have also been featured with Club Manouche on TVNZ’s Good Morning Show, Volvo Ocean Races, Taste Festival Auckland, Hallertau and many more.
