Justin Duhaime’s Gypsy Muse is Ottawa’s premier Gypsy Jazz/jazz manouche style band. Inspired by the legacy of legendary Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt, the music is driven by swinging and grooving rhythm guitar which functions as a vehicle for improvisation. They combine an eclectic mix of high energy swing, latin grooves, virtuosic fast tempo tunes and luscious ballads. Find them at the confluence of the old and the new. Give them a listen.
The core of the band consists of guitarists Justin Duhaime & Nabil Yaghi.
They also play in two hot club style quartets, one featuring violin and another featuring clarinet.
