Barrio Manouche is an acoustic SF-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brasil and California) playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artists from around the globe.

The band performs a repertoire of original instrumental compositions with a unique sound that's difficult to classify but instantly recognizable deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, to the hot jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, the gypsy soul of eastern europe, the flamenco of Paco de Lucía, to the avant-garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane. Barrio Manouche play the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley this Saturday, and they join host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 6/19 at 9 pm for a preview.
