The duo N'imPorte Quoi   





The “duo NPQ” was founded in 2004 by Koko Taylor and Sylvain Fournier, with the specific intention of reversing the commonly held principle that a group should devote itself to a single type of music. 

NPQ stands for “N’imPorte Quoi”, a French expression meaning something between “anything goes” and “messing around”. 

Since then the duo concentrates on satisfying this mission, but nevertheless ensuring a accurate delivery of the music. The repertoire of songs and instrumental pieces is generally interpreted on more than 20 instruments in each concert, and is totally devoid of barriers of style and genre. To add to the variety the performances also benefit from the frequent appearance of surprise guest artists.


The main activity of the Duo NPQ is to give public and private concerts.

However, the duo also proposes other options, such as:

  • Live music for silent movies (we have experience of this in collaboration with the Association Memoriav)
  • Presentation of musical instruments from all over the world (for schools etc.)
  • Musical guide in museums (experience in collaboration with the Musée d'Ethnographie in Geneva, Switzerland)
