Co-presented with the DCFM

"Women's History Month" with Christine Tassan and SheBop Manouche

For over 20 years French Canadian guitarist Christine Tassan has been thrilling audiences across Canada and around the world with her unique renditions of Django Reinhardt’s music, along with her own original compositions in the gypsy jazz style. An outstanding soloist, her performances have been described as contagiously dynamic and effervescently joyous, at the same time exhibiting both a quiet strength and an irresistible audacity. As a singer, composer, writer, director, and producer, she has contributed to numerous musical projects in Quebec and internationally, as a leader and as a guest artist.

Trained in classical guitar, Christine quickly became interested in many styles, developing an early and obvious talent as a singer-songwriter while studying folk, pop, jazz composition and arranging, later focusing on gypsy jazz and the music of Django Reinhardt.

In 2003 Ms. Tassan founded her all-female gypsy jazz and swing band, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures. The band was an instant success and has since performed in over 600 festivals and venues in Quebec, Canada, Europe, the United States and China, including the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine (France) and at DjangoFest NorthWest (USA). The group has produced 8 albums and has been nominated in Canada for many prestigious awards. “Sur la Route” is Christine Tassan et les Imposteures’ newest album, and it will become available in early 2024.

SHEBOP MANOUCHE

SheBop Manouche is a group of accomplished Washington/Baltimore-based musicians who play in the uniquely swinging “hot club” style known as Jazz Manouche, or gypsy jazz, inspired by the Parisian café scene and the music of Django Reinhardt. They first joined forces in 2022, for the Washington Women in Jazz Festival, to showcase some of the women in this region who specialize in gypsy jazz, with special invited guests. Accompanying guest artist Christine Tassan, this year’s ensemble includes violinist Christine Kharazian and clarinetist Halley Shoenberg, along with Christie Macdonald on guitar, and Cyndy Elliott on bass.
