Djangofolies: Django Reinhardt Festival
with Singer Mary Alouette
"Singer Mary Alouette is a gypsy jazz vocalist with a penchant for beautiful music and dangerous rhythm. The music of Django Reinhardt, opera, and electronic music segue into gypsy jazz in original compositions.
Mary was recently an Artist-in-Residence at the Strathmore Music Center in Maryland and released an EP of gypsy jazz originals, titled Midas, in April. The Maryland native has sung the National Anthem for the Orioles, the Nationals, and DC United before stadium crowds, competed at the Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater's National Tour. She’s also performed at venues like Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center and studied and performed classical voice at the Schlern International Music Festival in the Italian Alps and the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria.
