Christine Tassan et les Imposteures is a Gypsy swing-type band in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli (Quintette du Hot Club de France). In fact, they’re probably the only women’s band in the world that plays this kind of music. Their repertoire consists of both songs and instrumentals.

The technical quality of the following videos leaves something to be desired but they give a good idea of their amazing musicianship.

Éloges de la presse/Critical acclaim

-[translation] “An enchanting singer with a pretty voice, Christine Tassan is among the rare female lead guitarists playing gypsy swing… and she knows perfectly what she’s doing. Her delicate and clear phrasing always serves the music with some cleverly designed choruses. Her accomplices are in tune: instrumental skills, set up, challenging vocal harmonies, polished arrangements, free flowing swing, infectious enthusiasm…!”
