Gypsy Genius

As one of the world’s great violinists and composers, Daniel Weltlinger is highly acclaimed for his distinctive sound and improvisational approach in the genres of Gypsy-swing, jazz, klezmer and experimental/free-improvised music. He is frequently in demand as a recording and performance artist with some of the world’s top musicians and is highly sought after for his technical and musical mastery on the violin.

Daniel has performed and recorded in Australia, Europe, China, Morocco, the US and Israel with a host of renowned artists and ensembles including German-Gypsy guitar legend Lulo Reinhardt, world renowned Yiddish singer Karsten Troyke, Polish Australian chanteur extraordinaire Nadya Golski and her 101 Candles Orkestra, the multiple ARIA award winning ensemble Monsieur Camembert, Argentinian bandoneonist JoaquÌn Amenabar and Israeli jazz band Swing de Gitanes amongst countless others. His main projects ‘Zohar’s Nigun’ and ‘The Asthmatix’ brilliantly fuse Jewish themes and Kabbalistic-inspired improvisation within the respective contemporary frameworks of jazz and electronica/hip-hop, both groups having released their debut albums in 2012 to rave reviews worldwide.
