Django Amsterdam, an event featuring concerts, jam sessions, workshops and a kids' afternoon, is dedicated to guitarist Django Reinhardt, the originator of gypsy jazz or swing manouche. This style of acoustic swing jazz became part of the Roma and Sinti culture thanks to Django, who's generally considered one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

Top players from the international gypsy jazz world united for the fourth edition of Django Amsterdam (26-28 January at BIMHUIS and Kapitein Zeppos). Saturday's program started with an afternoon for kids featuring Mozes Rosenberg. The virtuoso Icelandic trio led by Gunnar Hilmarsson opened the Saturday evening's performance. The highlight was the concert by guitarist and 'gypsy rock star' Robin Nolan, who blends Django's style with all kinds of influences including The Beatles, Ravi Shankar and eighties pop songs.

Personnel: Gunnar Hilmarsson Trio: Gunnar Hilmarsson, Johann Gudmundsson guitar, Leifur Gunnarsson bass.

Robin Nolan Trio & guests: Robin Nolan, Kevin Nolan guitar, Arnoud van den Berg bass. Special guests: Wawau Adler, Anton Goudsmit guitar.
