In case you missed it, that romantic gypsy music you hear trailing the footsteps of Owen Wilson’s fictional character “Gil” in Midnight in Paris is the oh-so-French guitar of Stephane Wrembel.
The French born-musician recently spoke with NPR’s David Greene about his musical career and his arrival in the U.S. with just $300 dollars to his name. The next day, he boldly tried to contact Woody Allen via a Yahoo Group.
Today, Wrembel is on the famed director’s music roster — as well as many others — with melodies that invoke the whimsy and free-spiritidness of the Belgian jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.
Have you listened to Stephane Wrembel or have you seen him in concert? Do you listen to the modern-day gypsy music genre?
