From soaring gypsy ballads to hot jazz standards,
the versatility and energy of this acoustic quintet
keeps audiences mesmerized and their dancing
shoes hot on the floor. With two guitars, a violin, a
stand-up bass and the recent addition of an
accordion, Mishra's Dream brings to life the style of
French jazz made famous by guitarist Django
Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli, while
including other gypsy standards from various
backgrounds, and original compositions.
Band members come from Calgary AB,
Halliburton ON, Kippins NF, Sydney NS and
Chimney Corner, NS. Diverse musical backgrounds
provide a distinct sound all their own.
Mishra's Dream eagerly awaits the release of their
first album, with a release date set for February,
and a cross-Canada tour being planned for the
summer of 2009.
