Babik Reinhardt

~ Person


Babik Reinhardt (8 June 1944, Paris – 13 November 2001, Grasse) was one of Django Reinhardt's sons, and a guitarist himself. He did not learn the guitar directly from Django, who wanted him to learn the piano instead, but from various other family members.

He was involved in the Manouche jazz scene all his life, frequently appearing at the Samois-sur-Seine festival, but did not strictly adhere to the style in his playing, preferring a jazz-fusion sound.

One son, David, is a guitarist and leader of the David Reinhardt Trio. Another son, Markus is a gypsy violinist.

Reinhardt's first name was also the inspiration for the Buffalo, NY based Manouche jazz quartet "Babik," who have released two CDs, Pronounced: Bah-beek (2006), and American Gypsy (2008).
