“Gloriously melodramatic, extraordinary musical prowess and breathless panache…ensemble playing at it’s finest” (The Drum).
With sensitivity, virtuosity, & astonishing energy, Triple ARIA Award-winning band Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with other World Music styles, to create a truly original, irresistibly potent blend. Or as The Age put it, “a brazen and intoxicating blend of jazz, Gypsy Swing, Latin & East European influences. Monsieur Camembert has received standing ovations around the globe, with acclaimed performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and the International Leonard Cohen Festival to name just a couple of highlights.
“They pick you up & carry you on a wave of energy, excitement & poignancy that never relents….the band play with such cohesion, energy & abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation. Simply the best Gypsy band in the land! ” (John Shand, SMH).
