Event description

Description

Pioneers in a domain usually reserved for men, this all-woman ensemble from Quebec reinvents Gypsy Jazz music while integrating new ideas and influences with originality and flair. Christine Tassan et Les Imposteures’ musical arrangements are innovative, they improvise with ease, interpret their repertoire with dynamism, and blend their voices in refined harmonies.

With this new show (Django Belles),Christine Tassan et les Imposteures whisks us away in a musical frenzy celebrating gypsy jazz with a repertoire of songs and instrumental pieces, that brings together a colorful show that's playful, poetic and funny, with a devilish swing that is supported by some surprising arrangements.

For this tour, the band is enriched with the gypsy swing of two exceptional brass players, a trumpeter and a trombonist. Their bright horn sounds stand out opposite the 100% gypsy groove of the four string players. Their communicative energy and the personal bond between them is what hits home the most. Christine Tassan et les Imposteures, are first and foremost good friends who have harnessed their energies and their voices to give rise to the fruit of their creativity.

For the past 15 years, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures have been doing their thing in the gypsy jazz scene in Quebec, Canada and internationally. The band has released six albums, winning a prestigious Opus Award in 2017 Jazz Album of the Year category for their album Entre Félix et Django as well as being nominated for the 2018 Concert of theYear category for the tour of the same name.
