  • The Rogue Folk Club presents Christine Tassan & Les Imposteures

Sixteen years have passed since Christine Tassan et les Imposteures started tending their craft in the gypsy jazz milieu, and there is no doubt that they are definitely here to stay. Pioneers in a domain usually reserved for men and precursors of the gypsy wave that swept across Québec, this all-woman quartet continues to reinvent this timeless music while integrating new ideas and influences with an originality and flair we have become familiar with. From standards to original compositions, the Imposteures’ musical arrangements innovate, rejuvenate and leave room for unbridled creativity from four talented and accomplished young women.

Since the group's inception in 2003 they have solidified their reputation with more than 400 concerts in various venues and festivals, including numerous appearances in major events and tours across Canada and France. They have performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Lévis Festival de Jazz, the Festival des guitares in Rouyn-Noranda, April in Paris in Vancouver, and in St-Pierre et Miquelon.

In June 2014, they had the great pleasure to be invited to the Django Reinhardt Festival of Samois-sur-Seine (France), one of the most prestigious gypsy jazz festivals anywhere, which takes place in the town where the great manouche guitarist lived his last years. In front of more than 2000 enthusiastic people, they stood out with their “finesse” and “joie de vivre” as the very first women and the first Québécois gypsy jazz band to perform on this famous stage!

On stage, we bear witness to musicians who have mastered their talents. They improvise with ease, interpret their repertoire with dynamism, and blend their voices together in refined harmonies. But it’s their communicative energy and the personal bond between them that hits home the most. Christine Tassan et les Imposteures, are first and foremost four friends who have harnessed their energies and their voices to give rise to, year after year, the fruit of their creativity.

Their latest album Django Belles was released in November of 2018. It grew out of a live improvised show that Christine has presented for the last ten years in Montreal. She wanted to take this project further and to bring the energy of this evening to a wider audience. The show is built around a single theme, that of the joys of winter. Pieces that are original, with refined arrangements and elaborate vocal harmonies, punctuated with musical "impostures" and propelled by a new sound that contrasts with everything the band has done so far.

So, we'll celebrate the upcoming winter in late September, with this special show at Performance Works! It will be a combination of material from the band's last three albums.
