Born in 1957 in Lorraine, France, Dorado Schmitt’s family introduced him to Gypsy jazz at a very early age. Learning guitar by the age of seven, his father showed him music from the world-renowned Gypsy jazz composer Django Reinhardt, unbeknownst that one day, Dorado would perform with him. After mastering the guitar, he soon learned how to play the violin and mastered that as well.
In 1978, he formed his band Dorado Trio, joining forces with Gino Reinhardt and Hono Winterstein. However, Dorado Schmitt began to write and became familiar with Bossa Nova and Flamenco. In 1983, he released his first album, Hommage a la Romenes and it quickly transformed into a jazz best-seller in Germany. In 1984, his second album dropped, entitled Notre Histoire.
In 1988, a car crash nearly killed him. Left in a coma for 11 days, his career was thought to be over. Miraculously, he not only survived, but he also thrived. Two years and numerous surgeries later, he reunited with his Dorado Trio to record their album Gypsy Reunion and in 1994 Parisienne. Additionally, Schmitt collaborated on numerous film soundtracks, including Nuages, Les Fous de Django and Latcho Drom.
