Christine Tassan has been steering her musical ship with boundless enthusiasm and confidence for over 20 years. Blessed with an absolutely contagious dynamism, she is one of the rare female jazz and gypsy jazz guitar soloists; and she stands out for her sensitive playing, her quiet strength, and her irresistible audacity. As a singer, composer, writer, director, and producer, she has contributed to numerous musical projects in Quebec and internationally, both as a leader and as a guest musician.
Classically trained, Christine became interested in gypsy jazz improvisation upon discovery of Django Reinhardt’s music in 1998. Her gypsy jazz group les Imposteures has performed in over 600 festivals and venues in Quebec, Canada, Europe, the United States, and China. The group has 7 albums to its credit, including Entre Félix et Django which was awarded the 2017 Opus Prize for Jazz Album of the Year.
