Rêve Bohème Rêve Bohème Copenhagen JENS FUGLSANG & RÊVE BOHÈME LINE-UP: Jens Fuglsang (vocal & lead guitar) Finn Poulsen (harmonica & vocal) Robert Pilgaard (rhythm guitar) Jesper Riis (bass) DJANGO GOES NORTH // THE SOUND The inspiration from the guitarplayer Django Reinhardt is the key to Rêve Bohème’s music and characteristic acoustic sound. On their new album “Django Goes North” the band have updated the European String Swing with a new repertoire of their own compositions, songs from the American jazz singer tradition, and interpretations of classic rock songs in “Django-style”. Django Goes North! Did the famous French guitarist Django Reinhardt ever play in the North? Yes, actually Django did visit Denmark back in February 1939 just before the outbreak of World War 2. Obviously Rêve Bohème never had a chance to see the concerts back in 1939 but the spirit from Django’s music still lives on 73 years after his visit to Denmark.
