So' Filles is a vocal duet composed by two “Sophie” so much… girly !... They laugh, eat, squeal, but they know how to sing so very well between two “chouquettes”. Auriane Orinel, of lyric formation is so sweet on Pop sounds and R'n’B (She sings as well the Night Queen of Mozart as Single Ladies of Beyonce). Shiran Azoulay, self-taught and alto in spite of her, vibrates through the World Music, the Pop and the Jazz (Michael Jackson, whom she believe in since the age of 6), Ella Fitzgerald and so many others). The vocal duet So'Filles makes its own videos during their rehearsals, always in the esthetic concept of the Live Music. They find musical arrangement a capella from famous songs, with different collaborations (Tristan Loriaut, Laurent Azoulay …) and recently, they have found their own compositions. Crumbs of chouquettes also.
