Carolina Reapers Swing

The Carolina Reapers Swing was born from the meeting of young, crazy musicians of the ’30s and ’40s and the “swing” dance. This synergy produced a group that is interested in jazz standards and in the rare pieces that bring together music and “swing” dancing since the early days of “lindy hop”.

By its energy, their style is alive in spite of their chiseled arrangements. That is to say that they combine classicism and a new approach of the “ole’ trad jazz songs” of the “swing” era… and their name is already synonymous with “ça va chauffer !


Live, on Sunday, July 21, 2023 at 8 p.m., at the end of the festival, on the Promenade du Peyrou.
