Jean "Django" Reinhardt was a Belgian-born, Romani French jazz guitarist and composer, regarded as one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. He was the first jazz talent to emerge from Europe and remains the most significant by far.

Reinhardt lost most control of two fingers on his left hand in a fire in his youth. He developed a modified technique to overcome this disability and went on to forge an entirely new 'hot' jazz guitar style, now known as Gypsy jazz, or jazz manouche, that remains a musical tradition in France and neighbouring countries—especially within Gypsy culture. Reinhardt's innovations on the guitar helped elevated it above its prior position as usually only a rhythm instrument.

The Gypsy Project is a talented trio led by Wan Gigi who specialise in gypsy swing, popularised by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli. Their repertoire also includes classic jazz numbers and Malay jazz.
