The Django a Gogo Music Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with a first-ever Carnegie Hall date on March 3, headlined by master acoustic guitarists Stephane Wrembel, Al Di Meola and Stochelo Rosenberg. The 8 p.m. concert at Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage also includes musicians Larry Keel, Ryan Montbleau, David Gastine, Nick Anderson, Thor Jensen and Ari Folman-Cohen.

From its beginnings as a small gathering of musicians-organized by Wrembel-interested in the music of Django Reinhardt, Django a Gogo has evolved into a six-day festival, held Feb. 28 to March 5, encompassing the Carnegie Hall show, a music camp and coinciding concerts at the Woodland in Maplewood, N.J., and a jam session at Barbès in Brooklyn, N.Y.
