Music of the popular Hungarian ensemble Swing a la Django is characterised by a colourful mix of swing, Hungarian gypsy music, French chansons, tango, and jazz, based on the traditions of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. The unique Hungarian swing sextet will lead the listener to the last century’s thirties and forties variegated music sphere, where the turbulently evolving styles, that haven’t lost its originality and actuality even today, blended together.


The ensemble has toured and enjoyed sold-out venues together with Budapest Klezmer Band and Dohnányi Symphonic Orchestra, their shows are valued for the virtuoso play and high on-stage energy. Hungarian folk instrument cimbalom adds a special nuance to the bands’ music.


Swing a la Django was founded by Pál Lombos in 2014, with an idea to orchestrate swing music to big band, a format that was new in Hungary and abroad. Their success has lead to many cooperation projects with different orchestras. Kings of the swing will bring rich sounds of nostalgia to Estonia for the first time on December 12, at Kumu auditorium.
