An outstanding interpreter of early European Jazz of the 1930’s and 40’s, in the style of Django Reinhardt’s Quintette du Hot Club de France, Daisy Castro has emerged as a revitalizing force for the genre, stunning first time audience members, and continuing to enthrall even those that have seen her perform many times before. Her dynamic playing channels some of the early greats, while adding a modern edge to the Jazz Manouche tradition. If you close your eyes, you’ll find it hard to believe that such passion can be produced by a musician so young. It will make you believe in reincarnation, and give you a fresh view on what lies ahead in the progression of Django’s legacy. Daisy has been an active member of the “Gypsy Jazz” community both in the United States and in Europe since she was 14 years old. She has played on stages on both continents with all of the masters.

Now, with three recordings rooted in this style under her belt, she has earned the respect of said masters and their knowledgeable audiences, which is no small feat in this traditionally male dominated genre. Daisy is touring to promote her newest project, “World On Fire”, which reaches even further around the globe for its influences. Encompassing everything from Django compositions to Salsa to traditional Turkish music, it opens up a whole new world of exploration for her quartet.
