Second Sundays: Stephane Wrembel and Banda De Los Muertos

A live recording from the March 2015 Second Sundays open house festivities at Pioneer Works, featuring the French, gypsy style guitarist Stephane Wrembel and the heavy-metal, brass-driven Mexican fourteen-piece Banda de Los Muertos.

The French virtuoso guitarist Stephane Wrembel first learned his craft with the manouche (the French Gypsies) but he has also gotten deep into American vernacular musical styles. While his playing falls into the general umbrella of Gypsy Swing his own compositions owe as much to Django Reinhardt as they do Pink Floyd or middle eastern music. Tonight, he will be drawing mostly from the Django repertoire.

Banda de Los Muertos was started a few years ago by Oscar Noriega and Jacob Garchik with the help of a dozen of their closest friends, including Chris Speed, Jim Black, Curtis Hasselbring, Brian Drye and with regular appearances by Mariachi Flor de Toloache’s Mireya Ramos.

Olivier Conan curated this music series for Second Sundays at Pioneer Works.
