Gypsophilia is a seven-piece Halifax band whose instrumental music straddles the jazz and indie worlds. They originally formed in 2004 out of a shared love of Django Reinhardt; now 4 records and thousands of kilometres later they are still blending elements of gypsy jazz, klezmer, funk, world music, indie rock and more to create their own startlingly original sound.
In recent years the band has become a formidable touring outfit, regularly criss crossing the continent. Their killer live shows have made them an audience favourite at major festivals and small clubs alike. With their serious musicianship, humour and showmanship they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment, and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing frenzy the next.
