Djoukil is a group of five fantastic French musicians from Lyon joined by their common passion for the music of Django Reinhardt-style Gypsy Jazz and American Swing.  Their favorite era being the jazz/swing rhythms and melodies of the 1940s makes them a much sought-after band for swing dances, festivals and concerts in France the past 10 years, and now they are coming to the U.S.! Gottaswing is delighted to host Djoukil on their American tour.
