Nicknamed "the Gypsy-jazz Warbler" by the New York Times and acclaimed as a "millennial shaking up the jazz scene" by magazine Vanity Fair, Tatiana Eva-Marie returns to explore the music of composer Django Reinhardt through her own original arrangements and lyrics in her latest project "Djangology", a tribute inspired by her French and Romanian Gypsy heritage and her love for the Parisian art scene of the 1920s to the 1960s.
Nicknamed “the Gypsy-jazz Warbler” by the New York Times and acclaimed as a “millennial shaking up the jazz scene” by magazine Vanity Fair, Tatiana Eva-Marie is a transatlantic bandleader, singer, and actress based in Brooklyn. Though best known for her work leading the Avalon Jazz Band – a band with a Parisian “vintage” flair that has gathered over 70 million views on YouTube – her interests have led her to explore a wide range of musical styles, from 1930s pop to modern jazz. Tatiana Eva-Marie’s singing is always inspired by her own French and Balkan heritage; a love for the Parisian art scene era spanning the 1920s to the 60s; a passion for Gypsy music; a fascination for New Orleans music; and a deep connection to the Great American Songbook. Through the lens of this musical kaleidoscope, she explores the music of Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Cole Porter, and other composers who were at the origins of French jazz, while adding her own original lyrics and arrangements to the mix. In the past two years, Tatiana Eva-Marie has been expanding her touring across the United States and Europe, and building a devoted online following among jazz fans and music lovers worldwide. In 2024, Tatiana Eva-Marie will be premiering her first opera as a librettist in Switzerland in April and releasing her new album "Djangology" on GroundUp Music in June.
