LET THERE BE VINTAGE JAZZ!
Together with her Ensemble, Astatine pays homage to the timeless talents of jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Chet Baker, Bill Evans and Miles Davis. Upbeat swing melodies invite audiences to let loose in the dance halls of the 1920s, before being transported to the 50s and 60s for poignant, soul-searching ballads. In between, original numbers with influences from Folk to Gypsy Swing give the program a unique twist and a fresh approach.

Le Jazz Balkanaise
With confident seduction, Astatine leads listeners into the bohemian world of Bucharest in the 1930s and 40s. Lively gypsy tunes, bewitching tangos, ballads and Romanian classics are presented in modern arrangements with Astatine's sassy vocal style leading the way.
The first album
This album is the result of a fruitful collaboration with great musicians from the Manouche scene of Belgium. The tangos and lively gypsy songs will transport you back in the exuberant world of the Bucharest's salons between the great wars. Fans of Django Reinhardt will be delighted to discover some of his gems in a unique interpretation.
