With repertoire derived greatly from French Chanson, Gypsy Jazz, Dixieland Jazz, French Oak Gypsy Band also play with Traditional World Folk music, and Modern tunes from around the world.
In this performance, the band plans on a caravan ride through many lands, with songs in French, Spanish, Roma, Catalan, Portuguese, Russian, and English. Highlighting both French music and the French relationship to American jazz, French Oak aims to reach into the depths of an emotion-fueled Piaf song and the light coquettishness of a Cole Porter tune.
