“The Gypsy-jazz warbler”THE NEW YORK TIMES
Tatiana Eva-Marie is returning with a brand new project celebrating the music of guitarist Django Reinhardt, the inventor of Gypsy Jazz. Instead of focusing on the emblematic style of playing that he created, her latest album DJANGOLOGY highlights the music of Django the composer, with her own original lyrics and arrangements, and the aim to lay the foundations for a Django songbook.
“I grew up in the jazz manouche circles, which are dominated by swarms of guitarists – it’s not always easy to fit in as a singer! The microcosm fascinated me and I too wanted to participate in the Django repertoire… I saw only one option: I had to write my own lyrics, tell my own stories, reinvent his music in my own image.”
Through lyrics in English, French, Romanian, and Rromanes (the Gypsy language), Tatiana narrates her journey from the dark alleys of the Latin Quarter to the chic New York society salons with humour and poetry.

“A millennial shaking up the jazz scene”
“Tatiana Eva-Marie has consistently delighted audiences with her buoyant style and effervescent personality, all of which fit firmly into the vintage jazz manouche genre that Django pioneered.”
