Biel Ballester Trio
The Biel Ballester Trio from Barcelona, Spain is composed of Biel Ballester (guitar), Graci Pedro (rhythm guitar) and Leandro Hipaucha (double bass). They are a trio ensemble from Barcelona, Spain, who play Gypsy Swing / Jazz, a style pioneered by the late great gypsy guitar genius Django Reinhardt, who fused traditional gypsy songs with Parisian bal musette with improvisational American jazz.
Biel is a young talented composer, player and teacher and recently had two of his works chosen by Woody Allen for his movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The Trio gives this music a modern slant, adopting new rhythm forms such as the bossa nova, bolero and rumba, and contributing creatively with their own compositions and original takes on classic songs of this genre.
