With more than twenty years of bandoneon in her arms, Louise Jallu can legitimately consider herself an accomplished musician despite her young age. It must be said that she started at the age of five, joining the renowned conservatory of Gennevilliers, her home town. The young girl grew up in a music-loving family - at home they listened to Monk, Bartók and Piazzolla - and in this institution founded by Bernard Cavanna she found material for her curiosity about the world of music, while at the same time ploughing deeper and deeper into the rich soil of the tango, a passion that would soon become her profession.
During her years of apprenticeship, she benefited from the lessons of great peers considered to be among the best experts, notably César Stroscio and Juan José Mosalini, who provided the prodigy with the fundamental qualities needed to make a name for herself in the cenacle of the tango: knowing its history and mastering the instrument, without becoming a mere copyist.
Thus, driven by this gift of ubiquity, cultivating both a desire for experimentation and a firm commitment to a long tradition, Louise Jallu gradually refined her fingering and sharpened her pen, in order to assert her expressiveness both on the bandoneon and on the score. Although she has had many mentors, citing Anibal Troilo, Astor Piazzolla, Máximo Mori and Dino Saluzzi among her teachers, the young woman is nonetheless a singular personality in a milieu long considered macho. Times are changing, and you can hear it.
Not even of age, but already holding a diploma in music studies and having won second prize in the solo bandoneon category of the Klingenthal International Competition (Germany), she decided to found her own group, Louise Jallu Quartet, while accumulating collaborations of all kinds, with the Greek singer Katerina Fotinaki as well as Sanseverino, with jazzmen such as Claude Barthélémy and Claude Tchamitchian, not forgetting the Argentine aesthete Tomás Gubitsch.
