Hailed as the "whiz kid of Gypsy jazz," French guitarist and bassist Bireli Lagrene will perform at Warsaw's Fabryka Trzciny club/art center Feb. 12.

Brought up in a Romany family in France, Lagrene learned his first guitar chords by watching his father. His exceptional talent was quickly noticed. As a 12-year-old he performed at a televised festival of Roma culture in Strasbourg.

As a teenager Lagrene performed and recorded with world jazz greats such as Benny Carter, Benny Goodman and Stephen Grappelli. His latest album, Just the Way You Are, recorded together with guitarist Hono Winterstein, drummer Franky Wolf and percussionist Andre Ceccarelli, combines Gypsy jazz with traditional American sounds.

Feb. 12, Fabryka Trzciny, 14 Otwocka St., 8 p.m., Tickets zl.95
