They have a large repertoire including jazzy music from the 1930’s to 50’s, songs from musicals, latin tunes, adult contemporary, and a few African classics. They lean more to the sophisticated and is the perfect choice if you require a big sound with lots of live instruments and vocals but are on a tight budget. Their strongest point is their cross-cultural appeal. Beautiful vocals and clever instrumentals, they are an incredibly talented and fresh duo.
