As he appears in the text:

“Born in Belgium in 1910 and raised mostly on the road, Django Reinhardt was a self-taught guitarist. After losing two fingers in a caravan fire at age eighteen, he had to reteach himself. He never learned to read or write, but his songs, blending Roma musical traditions with jazz, remain some of the most influential of the twentieth century.”
