Renaud Dardenne Trio invites Osvaldo Hernandes #gypsyjazz #manouche #django

Renaud Dardenne (guitar), Benjamin Clement (guitar), Boris Schmidt (double bass), Osvaldo Hernandez (percussion)

Renaud Dardenne is a key figure in the Belgian gypsy jazz scene. He has played with Tcha Limberger in Les Violons de Bruxelles, with Fapy Lafertin in his New Quartet and in many other spheres. With this trio, he reveals a universe all his own, with plenty of room for improvisation. Central to this project is his collaboration with guitarist Benjamin Clement, a true musical chameleon and a reference in Balkan music. Boris Schmidt plays the double bass, ready to delight us with his clear melodic lines and unrelenting groove. What better playground than this trio for the brilliant percussionist Osvaldo Hernandez?
