Le chemin de django is a DVD project featuring gypsy jazz guitar master Lollo Meier.
In 2010 gypsy jazz guitar master Lollo Meier took his horse-drawn caravan from his home in the Netherlands to the birthplace of the legendary Django Reinhardt in Liberchies in Belgium.
There he met with his cousin Fapy Lafertin and his bandmates and played a concert to mark Django's centenary. The band then travelled onwards to Samois Sur Seine to the International Festival where they met up with Stochelo Rosenberg and held an astonishing impromptu late-night 'campfire' jam.
Lollo, Fapy and Band then met with violin maestro Tcha Limberger and performed a concert on the main stage at Samois where they were joined by guitar legend Hank Marvin.
Lollo travelled on to the UK where he played a sell-out concert with his touring band.
This HD DVD contains performance footage of Lollo, Fapy, Stochelo, Tcha Limberger, Dave Kelbie, Andy Aitchison, Hank Marvin, Bram and Henry

Best DVD I've bought
Pros: A true presentation of the gypsy style.
Myself, along with my brother and nephew have visited Samois quite a few times and always looked for a DVD which showed the real life side of the gypsy guitarists. This DVD does that and more. Some of the best "campfire" playing you'll ever see and a glimpse of the Samois Festival too. If you love Django's style of playing, then this DVD is a must for you. The picture and sound quality is superb.
