Downtown Sounds @ Townes presents: Le Duo

March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Le Duo: Mimi and Gabe Pirard are a French-American sibling duo that charms audiences with their incredible talent and Parisian flare. Mimi has a passion for reviving songs from times gone by as sung by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and their contemporaries. Gabe brings his guitar to life and draws audiences to their feet with a strumming inspired by Paco de Lucia and Django Reinhardt, every stroke filled with energy and emotion. Mimi and Gabe started playing and performing in their early teens in Saint Germain en Laye, France, learning to  harmonize melodies and take leading roles performing traditional and  contemporary French songs. The sibling duo moved to California in their early twenties to form the band Dgiin, which earned The North Bay Music Awards, “Best World Music Band”, for  its unique, high energy mix of gypsy, flamenco, with a touch of funk.  Their repertoire includes songs in French, Spanish, and English. Today Mimi also sings with the band, SonoMusette, where she explores and exudes her  favorite musical styles and songs.
