Harp Bazaar was born in the minds of Tara (harp & vocals), Duncan (fiddle) and Filippo (guitar) in late 2015; three exceptionally talented musicians who embarked on a unique musical experiment, combining the majestic sound of the harp with the speed and erratic energy of traditional Gypsy swing.
As well as regularly performing at weddings, corporate events and private parties, the band has performed at Le Quecum Bar, London’s most famous Gypsy jazz venue and held a year-long residency at North London’s favourite music pub – The Boogaloo. The trio have also toured Italy twice and performed at the prestigious, Royal Albert Hall.
Harp Bazaar’s repertoire ranges from Gypsy jazz music by Django Reinhardt to traditional jazz tunes by Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and Nat King Cole. They also include songs by the likes of Bobby McFerrin and Stevie Wonder. uniquely re-arranged in swing style.
With Harp Bazaar comes a new sonic world – something you’ve never heard before!
