French pop duo Starck and Jarre: The Two Names for Music

Parisian pop duo The Two might be a relative newcomer, but the band mates’ names are already well known… Not surprising given that Ara is the daughter of prolific designer Phillippe Starck, and David the son of French composer Jean-Michel Jarre and English actress Charlotte Rampling. The duo, which has been praised by cult French music magazine Les Inrocks and debuted in Parisian legendary theatre l’Olympia, will perform in London on the 15th and 16th September at Momo Restaurant.

While it would be easy to dismiss them as celebrity brats trying to milk their genitors’ fame, there is definitely more to the Parisian band formed by David Jarre and Ara Starck than their well known surnames. Instead, The Two prove that talent can definitely be hereditary.

Unassuming and obsessively creative, painter Ara and magician David formed their duo seven years ago when they met in Paris. They have since created a rather inspired folksy music, sung in English, using the magic of uncluttered melody and vocal harmony; not surprisingly, David is also a multi-instrumentalist.

The event is hosted at atmospheric North-African restaurant Momo and will be held on 15th and 16th September as part of its new Live at Momo series. Having already become a recognised host for amazing world music performances such as Youssou N’Dour, The Two will introduce a new era for Momo in modern music.
