Every summer, gypsies from around Europe flock to the village of Samois­-sur-Seine in France for the Django Reinhardt Festival, where their encampments double as a musical breeding ground. Growing up in the village, singer Cyrille Aimée was adopted into this annual assembly of artists. Reinhardt’s descendants embraced the emerging talent, exposing her to gypsy jazz and its lifestyle. Today, the celebrated performer the New York Times dubs “a one-woman rhythm machine” draws from a hybrid of musical influences that range from her French Dominican roots to jazz. Aimée’s sultry vocals bounce off the drums, bass and guitar in an interpretation of jazz standards old and new.
