A Japanese music duo was featured in one of the morning TV show a few weeks ago I was told, that they are Japanese but sing in France and that they sang in a TV trailer of Festival Paris Cinema last year. Must be very talented, I thought. So, I went and looked for them on YouTube and found them.
Zoun-Doko Bushi by Les Romanesques on YouTube
I do not have a word to describe their performance. Unusual? Different? Humoristique? Peculiar? Whatever I (and you) think of them, their song sure sticks to you.
Tout va bien-ien-ien, tout les citoyens-yens-yens
Je me promène le dimanche matin
Les pigeons picorent des miettes de pain
Je mets mes pieds sur une crotte de chien
The melody itself is of a Japanese origin, but their lyrics are their own I think.
Then there is another song:
Mademoiselles by Les Romanesques on YouTube
ma jolie petite fille, mademoiselle?
They are quite something else.
*** Shop Update ***
The listings of four Japanese print (cotton fabric) are going to expire very soon and as I announced it before I am not going to re-list them. If you ear-marked them, please go and have a final look. The listing of a set of 24 silk sewing thread has already expired. I plan to revamp my shop (not know when I actually get around to do so, though), so it will remain unavailable at Etsy however, if you would like to purchase it I can list it as "specially reserved" for you. Please drop me a line.
