Les Petits Nouveaux is a gypsy jazz trio from Canada/Sweden. While the group’s sound is defined by Django and Grappelli, Les Petits Nouveaux also draw inspiration from Astor Piazzolla, Bartok and many other composers and styles into their signature sound. After being formed in 2011 by Swedish guitarist Mikko Hilden in Toronto, the international trio has maintained a presence on the gypsy jazz scene through concerts and residencies. In August, 2015 the trio will make its second tour of Sweden.
