About Stephane Wrembel

Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world. This prolific musician from France has been releasing a steady stream of music since 2002 and has truly made his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. David Fricke at Rolling Stone Magazine called him “a revelation.” 

His live performance is unparallel. Wrembel has headlined Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall in NYC and The Lyon Opera House in France, toured with master violinist Mark O’Connor and shared stages with everyone from Sam Bush, Stochelo Rosenberg, Esperanza Spalding, and Al Di Meola.  Wrembel has dazzled audiences at such major gatherings as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Rochester International Jazz Festival, Django Reinhardt Festival in France, Ellnora--The Guitar Festival, Caramoor Jazz Festival presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center and many others. He has toured Canada, France, Israel, UK, India and Nigeria. In 2003, Wrembel created his own annual event, "Django A Gogo Festival", where he and others influenced by Reinhardt celebrate the Sinti guitar style. Wrembel is now considered one of the preeminent master guitarists in the world specialized in the Django Reinhardt style but he avoids the label “Gypsy Jazz” commonly used for Reinhardt’s music. 
 
Wrembel moved to New York in 2003. Wrembel’s breakthrough came with his original composition “Bistro Fada,” a Django-influenced swinging waltz on his fifth album Origins that became the theme song for Woody Allen’s 2011 Oscar®-winning film, “Midnight In Paris.” It was included on the Oscar®-winning soundtrack for the film. Wrembel performed the irresistibly catchy “Bistro Fada” live during the 2012 Academy Awards® ceremony with an all-star ensemble led by Hans Zimmer.
 
In 2014, Wrembel delivered Dreamers of Dreams and, in 2016, he released two masterfully recorded live albums: Live In India and Live In Rochester. In March of 2017, Wrembel released The Django Experiment I and The Django Experiment II to coincide with the "Django A Gogo 2017" at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall. These were followed these with 2018’s The Django Experiment III, 2019’s The Django Experiment IV and 2020’s The Django Experiment V, which features special guest Daisy Castro on violin. In 2019, Wrembel produced Les Yeux Noirs and released Django L’Impressionniste putting the spotlight on 17 little-known solo pieces Reinhardt recorded between 1937 and 1950. Not one to rest on his laurels, 2020 may prove to be the most prolific year yet for Wrembel. He recorded the score for the soon to be released Woody Allen movie, “Rifkin’s Festival.”  He has recorded an album with his band and heralded jazz pianist, Jean-Michel Pilc, and Nick Driscoll on saxophone and clarinet, that is set to be released in october of 2020 in conjunction with Django A Gogo 2020 festival .  He also plans on releasing Django New Orleans
