Justin Duhaime & William Lamoureux – Gypsy Jazz Manouche Duo

Inspired by the legacy of legendary manouche 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.

Justin Duhaime is a passionate guitarist, composer, and teacher with a deep commitment to music. He is the recipient of the Ottawa Arts Council’s 2018 RBC Emerging Artist Award, the first musician to ever receive the award. As a freelance musician, Duhaime has performed in a wide array of musical styles including jazz, manouche, rock, pop, reggae, metal, and many more.
