Django Reinhardt

Today is Django Reinhardt’s 105th birthday!

He was an amazing gypsy jazz guitarist and composer. After injuring his left hand in a fire he could only use his index and middle fingers, thus creating a completely new style of jazz guitar technique.

Here’s a portrait and a tune to listen to!
