“Django did something that only a few could do; he was so exceptional that he was able to forge his own music genre (Gypsy swing). He was a virtuoso guitar player with a fantastic feeling for lyricism, structure and balance. His unmistakable genius lies in the way he so effortlessly combined jazz with musette and gypsy music to create masterpieces which have passed and will continue to pass the test of time. He is considered to be one of the most important musical icons of the 20th century.” (Waso De Cauter)
