About Fapy Lafertin Quintet
Fapy Lafertin (Courtrai, Belgium, 1950) is a jazz guitarist of Romani ethnicity, one of the foremost contemporary exponents of Gypsy jazz. Lafertin was born in the Romani community of Manouches, and took up guitar at the age of five. After performing in a family band with his father on violin and his brother on second guitar, he joined the Piotto orchestra. He would later play in WASO (with Koen de Cauter on reeds, Albert Vivi Limburger in drums and Michel Verstraeten in double bass) before forming his own quintet in 1985. Lafertin later followed a solo career.
