Sweet and hot: That's the sound that French-born, Brooklyn-based guitarist Stephane Wrembel brought to his intimate early set in The Studio, globalFEST's smallest space. Wrembel specializes in jazz manouche, or so-called "Gypsy" jazz — and his set with his quartet showed off the sparkling, speedy fingerwork already familiar to fans of Woody Allen, who has used Wrembel's music in his films Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris.

Set List

  • "Voice From The Desert"
  • "Momentum"
  • "The Selfish Gene"
  • "Tsunami"
  • "Minuit Aux Batignolles"
  • "Apocalypse"
  • "Bistro Fada"
  • "Voyager"
  • "Train From Hell"
