DjamBossa (jam-boss-a) -Djambossa is inspired by the late great gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. We start our name, like he did. Djambossa is highly improvisational, we love to "jam". Djambossa infuses latin styles like bossanova into our set.

A sometimes soft and sometimes scathing acoustic mélange.

An eclectic mix of ethnic folk - gypsy jazz, bossanova, flamenco and even blues

Coming soon to a bar stool near you.
