Born in a family of musicians, JCG began to learn violin at the age of five. He first discovered his passion for slavonic music when he entered Aix-en-Provence Music Academy, in 1999, through the work of composers such as Béla Bartók, Henryk Wieniawski or Antonín Dvořák.

In 2008, Jean-Christophe travels for the first time to Romania, and stays for four months in Transylvanian Cluj-Napoca. The numerous human and musical encounters and discoveries of this period will have a tremendous impact on his musical life. Every year since, JCG returns to Romania to practice and deepen his knowledge of this repertoire, which is now at the heart of his music.
