The Legendary Dutch Gypsy Swing guitar Master, composer, bandleader and arranger, Lollo comes from an elite family of Gypsy players.
His goal: to carry on the music of Django, with a style and technique thats traditional, melodious, lyrical, sensitive and joyful. His mellifluous compositions have a refreshing authentic Django flavour and are played with extraordinary talent, unique style and amazing suppleness that clearly reflects that he makes music he loves.
His Quartet is sought after around the globe for private functions and renowned jazz festivals, famous for playing lesser known Django tunes and his own compositions.
A man of style, grace and humour, Lollos pure melodious playing touches his audiences and makes Djangos music as fresh today as it was 80 years ago.
As well as performing, he spends much of his time teaching sought-after master-classes, sharing his artistry and passing down Djangos legacy.
A remarkable man, with a remarkable style of playing.
