Markus Reinhardt Ensemble (DEU)

Markus Reinhardt Ensemble (DEU)It’s a very German debate. The term “Zigeuner” (‘Gypsy’) was misused by Nazis and, some say, shouldn’t be used any longer. Markus Reinhardt is proud to call himself Zigeuner. What is necessary is not to change the word but to change people’s thinking and negative attitudes towards these people. Markus is the grandnephew of the legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. His music is no Sinti Swing though naturally it includes Gypsy music elements with sounds from other popular musics. Call it Zigeunermusik with pride.
