For more than 20 years, guitarist Christine Tassan has charted her course with verve, aplomb and an absolutely contagious dynamism. One of the rare female jazz guitarists and gypsy jazz soloists, she stands out with sensitive playing, quiet strength and irresistible boldness. Also a singer, composer, author, director and producer, she takes part in numerous musical projects in Quebec and on the international scene, both as a leader and as a guest musician.

In 2003, she founded her gypsy jazz and swing songs group, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures, which was immediately successful and became a must of the gypsy jazz scene. Unique in its kind, this feminine ensemble performed in more than 600 festivals and venues in Quebec, Canada, Europe, the United States and China.

In 2020, alongside Les Imposteures, Christine returns with a new quintet project, Voyage Intérieur, a collection of 10 instrumental compositions, and the result of an introspective musical quest. Its electric and bebop sounds make us discover a new facet of the guitarist.
