Beso’s music takes the simmering mystery and romance of gypsy swing and ignites it with intense, hard driving acoustic rock. The result is a virtuosic statement steeped in tradition but injected with arresting modern sensibility. A sizzling brew of infectiously danceable rhythms carried by charged vocals, inspired lyrics and stunning solos. The lifeblood of gypsy jazz, the rhythm guitar strumming technique called “la pompe”, permeates the texture of the quintet’s original songs and is the foundation upon which their brilliant guitars, violin, upright bass, and drums dialogue. Beso captivates audiences internationally with their fervor inducing
repertoire, fluidly interweaving English and Spanish performances to create a dynamic audio tapestry that both conjures the charisma of classic gypsy swing and pioneers a new genre.
Beso’’s pyrotechnic gypsy rock has set many a stage ablaze, having energized hundreds of crowds at festivals and venues such as: Outside Lands Music Festival, Oregon Country Fair, SXSW, Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival, Symbiosis, Whole Earth Festival, Slim’s SF, The Great American Music Hall, and countless clubs and events. Whether the setting is large or intimate, the electrifying passion of Beso shines through in their rave garnering performances.
