Ellis Island, 1950.
Two sisters and their pianist, just off the ferry, are ready to do anything to make their place in the New World.
Satin, fur and dark glasses, they scrape the cafes and music halls in refined, rogue thugs.
From Bernstein to Gershwin to Cole Porter: great classics and rare gems, this music inspired by African-American rhythms, in turn tender and humorous, celebrate a time of great emancipation and cultural mix.
A music full of hope, a tribute to diversity and joie de vivre.
