Best Mix of Modern and Traditional: Parov Stelar
Like St. Germain, DJ Parov Stelar is another electronic artist at Coachella who surrounds himself with a band of distinctive live musicians. Stelar ignited a full set of electro-swing, mingling ancient pop forms with modern dance energy. With a trio of restless brass players, Stelar sampled a bit of ancient jazz. Singer Cleo Panther danced beneath her Flamenco hat, swinging her hips to the beat while leaving room for rich solos from the horns and bass.
