Jazzy French duo of sisters "Alice & Cécile" to hit South Africa in March

Alice & Cécile, a French duo of twin sisters accompanied by a musician will tour the Alliance Française in Southern Africa and bring some jazzy flavours and melodic sounds.

Alice & Cécile have sung since early childhood. The sisters learnt to sing on their own, training their ear by listening to the albums of their parents’ record collection over and over again. They were first spotted in a jazz club in New York while on a trip in the city. On their return to France, the sisters were then taken in charge of by the guitarist and producer Patrick Saussois, who organised the recording of their very first album. They have already toured in several countries, including Asia in Malaysia, in Singapore, in Hong Kong, as well as in Indonesia, where their album is widely distributed.
