Matt Holborn violin, Kourosh Kanani and Jeremie Coullon guitars Simon Read bass
Latchepen are a band born out of a collective admiration of Django Reinhardt and anything that swings, the word Latchepen is an exclamation of happiness in the Romani language. Acoustic by nature but with a projection and heart beat that can rival any amplifier or drum, this is jazz on a string with influences ranging from Romani music to bebop. Welcome back to Chapel Allerton to for Kourosh Kanani who was born in the village and played gypsy jazz guitar since the age of eight. Also a welcome return to Leeds to Matt Holborn and Simon Read both graduates of Leeds College of Music .
