The Francisco Batista Acoustic Quartet

Emerging from Berlin and rooted in Gypsy Jazz, this exciting new project offers a new perspective on acoustic music. By going away from the traditional way of playing Gypsy Jazz, the mix and influence of Latin American rhythms such as Tango, Candombe or Samba are easily heard.


The Francisco Batista Quartet explores the possibilities of combining through-composed music with improvisation, virtuosity, different timbres and more conventional forms of music. 
The results are melodies filled with imagery, climaxes and stories waiting to be heard.
