About this project

Born in Marseille in 1963, Louis Winsberg first learned to play the guitar at the age of twelve, with his gypsy friends, Los Reyes, who went on to become The Gypsy Kings. After having studied classical guitar, he decided to learn the jazz.

In 1984, he joined up with Jean-Pierre Como and Paco Séry to form Sixun, which recorded a total of 9 albums and 3 videos, and toured extensively both in France and abroad.

Louis Winsberg was one of the first musicians in France to use the synthesized guitar. He explores new melodies, harmonies and tones, and is particularly interested in ethnic music and its rhythms. In the 90’s, Louis Winsberg took part to many musical experiences, playing with different artists like Sylvain Luc, the Touré-Touré brothers, Marc Berthoumieux or Claude Nougaro.

In 1998 Louis Winsberg began to study flamenco guitar and met many Flamenco artists, it is at that moment, that the band Jaleo was born! The Jaleo show, was an instant success with the public, and toured in France and abroad for more than 100 concerts. The album released in October 2001. As the first Jaleo captivated audiences in 2005, Jaleo released his second album, entitled “Le Bal Des Suds”.

At the same time, Louis Winsberg doesn’t neglect Jazz and go back to its source improvising on the standards of French Chanson with Christophe Wallemme (b) and Stéphane Huchard (dms), Linley Marthe (b) and Karim Ziad (dms) in the Douce France trio. The CD « Douce France » has its release in January 2007 on e-motive records.


In residence in Coutances (Jazz sous les Pommiers) since 2004, Louis Winsberg continues his meeting with the « traveller musicians » with the “Winsberg.World.Work”.
