the essential
After the release of their single, Gilles and Jérôme Noël, les Jumeaux, are now releasing the video clip for their song “To our city”, in tribute to their father and to Decazeville.

We remember the release of the song “To our city” by the Twins in December 2020. Song written by their guitarist and arranger Hervé Bézamat. Since then, several hundred copies have been sold: “We would like to thank the local merchants who played the game well and are still playing it by selling our song. We also thank the mayor of Decazeville for his confidence “, indicate Gilles and Jérôme Noël, who have just completed the video clip of the song:” We contacted Julie Gibergues of the choir “The Voices” of Villefranche-de-Rouergue for running the same children (Elliot; Valentine; Emilie; Eliette) that we recorded during the single. She helped us both for the parents’ authorizations and to direct them on the set. We thank him for it ”.

Singing lessons at home

The confinement has not spared the artistic activities of the Twins: “For two years, we have been faced with cancellations of concerts but also the cancellation of the majority of educational projects in the schools that we have been providing for nearly 20 years. It’s a real heartbreak! Just like the lack of contact with the public. Fortunately, some organizers implemented measures that allowed us to go on stage ”.
The health crisis prompted the Twins to put a new string to their bow, giving singing lessons at home for all ages, from the youngest to the oldest. “It is an initiation to the voice but also to stage expression. It is open to amateurs and professionals alike. Jérôme on the Aveyron sector and Gilles on the Lot sector ”. On the project side, Les Jumeaux is writing and composing for their 6th album. They intend to build a new acoustic formula; quickly find more scenes and educational projects in schools. In short, rediscover the life before …

The town hall of Decazeville offered the single to all municipal employees, but also to residents of retirement homes in Decazeville, and soon in schools in the city. This hymn will also play its role of ambassador in the form of a gift during events and reception in town hall. “We are very happy to have found this listening, this sensitivity, this echo with François Marty. We are proud if we can contribute to the promotion of Decazeville and the Basin ”, underline Les Jumeaux.
