The duo aims to make French songs with a distinctly American vibe and American songs with a French touch, with time periods and inspirations constantly crossing and colliding. Their diverse mix of influences has one thing in mind: making generations of people dance, sway, and sing along to the melodies that stick, long after Ginkgoa has left the building.
