Christine Tassan et les Imposteures

April 6, 8:00 p.m.

Christine Tassan et les Imposteures

Between Félix and Django

In the nearly fifteen years that they have been demonstrating their chops in the world of  gypsy jazz and revisited songs, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures have taken their place at the forefront of the genre. Winners of the 2017 Opus Prize for jazz album of the year, nominated for Opus prizes in 2014 and 2018 as well as at the ADISQ Gala in 2010, they are now offering a whole new show bringing together the most beautiful works of Félix Leclerc and Django Reinhardt.

This delicious double homage evokes the meeting between the Québécois singer and the gypsy guitarist in a hotel in the Saint-Germain-des-Près, neighbourhood of Paris, in 1951. Although the meeting is real, all the rest is the fruit of the imagination and abundant creativity of the four musicians. With audacious virtuosity and humour, they combine the poetry of the one with the swing of the other, inventing a lavish musical universe that is an ode to creativity and freedom, as well as a splendid tip of the hat to two great artists who, each on their own continent, made a mark on their times and cultures.

A lush musical universe!
