„Germany´s best ladies swing band"
“Six Ladys with their own original and very distinct stage personas”
Les Belles du Swing have created a colourful blend of sophisticated european swing and entertainment.
The six musicians perform a combination of fast-paced and laidback swing numbers in three-part harmonies with German lyrics, plus many of their own, original compositions, leaving no one in doubt as to their swing credentials.
The band have given a contemporary makeover to swing classics from the 20s to the 50s incorporating jazz-style improvisation and their own German lyrics, many of them telling a different story to the original. The lyrics deal with contemporary matters; life as we experience it today.
