Alderney Landing Mainstage


Halifax-based Gypsophilia’s original instrumental music blurs the lines between hot jazz, klezmer, funk, and world rhythms. Their killer live shows and danceable, genre-bending sound have made them an audience favourite all over Canada and the US. With a combination of serious musicianship, humour and showmanship they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing frenzy the next. At Prismatic, Gypsophilia will perform fan favourites and new songs from their recently released album, Night Swimming. In Night Swimming, Gypsophilia departs from the purely live approach of their previous discs in pursuit of a fresh verve and polish for their original music. The result is a hauntingly beautiful 9-song masterpiece that showcases a darker, cinematic side of Gypsophilia alongside their signature ebullient swinging sound.
