Biography

There are multiple artists with this name.

[1] Latcho Drom is an indie-rock band from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, featuring members of scene stalwarts Scrapbooker, Ghost Cousin, National Security Council, and Lontananza. They sing songs about drinking, comedians, divorce, drinking, historical figures who drank, getting too drunk while on tour, small towns, perception, and astronomy. Their first 7”, Paper Trails b/w A Lonely Christmas For Coco Haley Gordon Moore, was produced by Mathew Leterksy at the Secret Ghost House in February, and released on their own Enlightened Despotism imprint in September 2012. Their 2nd 7”, When’d b/w The World Loves You Eddie Pepitone, is slated for release in December 2012, also on Enlightened Despotism.

Meaning “safe journey” in the Romani language, Latch Drom is a paean to the human spirit that continually perseveres in the face of seemingly insurmountable tragedy. Latcho Drom aims to use their live shows to provide a temporary autonomous zone to bring together disparate and atomized artistic communities. Latcho Drom is a forum for expression, dialog, and intellectual exchange regarding the meaning of art and culture in the twenty-first century.

[2]Latcho drom (meaning “have a good journey”in the gipsy language) was formed in the French town of Toulouse in 1993 by the gipsy guitarist Christophe LARTILLEUX, in order to revive the atmosphere of the famous Django REINHARDT Hot Club de France Quintet.
