About

Fusing the passion of gypsy music, the precision of classical, and the spontaneity of jazz, 'Cigány Weaver' create a rich and vibrant atmosphere for both the heart and mind. Front woman, Jo Davie's soaring vocals and enchanting gentle demeanour combine with the fiery violin, dynamic guitars and driving rhythm section to create a purely acoustic group that effortlessly navigates the musical nexus between intimacy and raucousness.

2019 delivered the release of the band’s debut eponymous album, premiering the group’s first original compositions within the genre and receiving a highly commended for the track ‘Janome’ in the Jazz category of the 2020 Queensland Music Awards. The album was received with great acclaim and airplay on ABC, Triple J, Double J, and community radio stations across Australia.

It is as likely to find Cigány Weaver packing out shows at renowned festivals such as Woodford Folk Fesival (QLD), Caloundra Music Festival (QLD) and MONA's Dark Mofo (TAS), as it is to find them playing a secret gig in a jazz bar. By drawing inspiration from the past, the sextet's signature compositions and arrangements weave a musical tapestry, contributing a new direction to the Australian music scene.
