Biréli Lagrène Trio
Biréli Lagrène Trio
What is left today of the child prodigy that was Biréli Lagrène? - A wonderful musician, a magician of the guitar 's most dazzling, a "choreographer" of the six-strings as they are currently on the fingers of one hand.

From the beginning, music was his language, and the Reinhardt school. Destiny inevitable when one is born, like him, in Alsace (1966), which comes from the large gypsy family, and the chance that identifies you as a gifted in this area. Spirit quicksilver Biréli pigera quickly history. Beyond rigor which was that of learning (with his father and with his brother), this incredible blend of strength and precision Lagrène the badge will grace never forget the essential: "Django m 'helped to see what is happening elsewhere," he likes to recall. This great lesson of freedom, he was able to capture like no other, his first major public benefits (including Montreux, 1981) offer a striking testimony.
Christine Tassan et Les Imposteures
Christine Tassan et Les Imposteures
With a decade and a half of bringing their special blend of Gypsy Swing and revisited cover songs to audiences, Christine Tassan et les Imposteures have made a name for themselves on the music scene. The latest show of these four exquisitely talented female musicians brings together some of the best works by Django Reinhardt, Félix Leclerc and American swing composers. With a singular mix of virtuosity, daring and humour, the four-woman string band draws inspiration from one artist’s poetry and the other’s swing to weave a rich new musical universe, an ode to freedom and creativity.
Gonzalo Bergara & The New Hot Cub of America
Gonzalo Bergara & The New Hot Cub of America
Gonzalo Bergara has emerged a virtuoso composer and lead guitarist. Mixing a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina, he has forged his own style of progressive Gypsy Jazz. His music exists in a way that very little music does. He has lavished such care on every phrase, built each arrangement with such lapidary precision and pared away anything extraneous, the music becomes sculpture. It has weight, density, gravity. This is serious….and deeply moving.
