"We create a vehicle for three people to express themselves in the most joyous fashion they can conjure in that moment. It's about hooking into that energy that's beyond human reasoning", smiles guitarist Richard Shepp Sheppard of the Boston-based gypsy flamenco swing trio Ameranouche.
The award winning Ameranouche (pronounced uh-Mare-uh-noosh) plays a passionate style of music they call Gypsy Flamenco Swing. They are veterans of the Newport Jazz Festival, Djangofest Northwest, Muzikfest Bethlehem, PA and the National Press Club. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Reinhardt. The rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic Gypsy inspired music, mixing Flamenco, Bebop, and Jazz swing influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they're playing a musette waltz from 1930 or an Andalusian inspired original tune, Ameranouche's Gypsy Flamenco Swing style is a fresh and highly enjoyable new sound for the 21st century.
Gypsy Flamenco Swing is about coming together and celebrating our shared humanity. Ameranouche is committed to connecting deeply with its audience and sharing joy and peace through their music.
