- Who's That? -
«D'jef is a French songwriter show combining touching and squeaky texts, and crazy music influenced by Eastern Eropean music, hiphop, beatbox, flamenco, jazz and blues. Somewhere between a music and a standup show, Jean-François Gasse makes you drift into a world woven through poetry, storytelling and music. Through countless performances on stages and in the street across Canada, Europe and Latinamerica, D’Jef has learned to animate crowds in his very personal way.»
Early interested for music and scene arts, is at 15 years old that Jean-François Gasse did his first experiences of show. He started his first musical and theatral projects and been quickly fascinated in street arts. The travel and the gyspsy way of music became a passion and guided his intention in his artistic approach.
Sometimes an actor, a fire-eater and a musician, he performed the various facets of his art on stage and on the street across Canada and Europe.
After a first Demo named "Quidam" recorded in 2008 at Grenoble in France, he set up a music band called "La Ritournelle" With which he realized two albums (Rose des vents, 2011 and Au "contoir" des nuits blanches,2012) and more than 180 shows since 2010 in provinces of Québec, Nova Scotia, New Brunzwick and in France.
Using the pseudonym of his travels, D'jef played in this new project since 2014. An EP was release (D'jef... Ou allez chez l'diable, 2015) and a tour in France followed. In June 2016, an 11 titles album was release (Djef - Quitte à s'en péter les dents). At this time the project has nearly 100 shows on stages.
