Music runs through their veins. Their father is a well known Surinamese producer and musician who plays the trombone and trumpet. Their mother is a singer who took part in the 90’s euro dance-act project The Sonic Surfers.

As toddlers the always smiling twins started singing on a daily base and never stopped ever since. At the age of 11 years old they started wriFng songs.

The ladies are modest, cheerful and very friendly and their purpose is to bring smiles on the faces of people they meet.
