The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

The award-winning Scottish-Egyptian multi-instrumentalist sisters Sarah and Laura Ayoub are being heralded as the new sound and faces of the classical and crossover world. Discovered by Mark Ronson, the girls were invited by Classic FM to make their Royal Albert Hall debut at Classic FM Live. After their thrilling performance they were immediately signed by Universal Music’s iconic label Decca Records, in a unique joint venture with Classic FM. Proudly Scottish, the Glaswegiansister’s single, ‘Melodies From Scotland’ (released for Burns Night 2017) went straight to No.1 on the iTunes Classical Chart. They recently performed at the BAFTAs where they played their own arrangement of ‘Mother’s Pride’ by George Michael. Again, this track went straight to No.1 immediately after the show! 

"It was brilliant to bring together such unique talents and produce a new cover of Uptown Funk. It’s an honour that such talented people are interested in my music...we creating something special!’"

Mark Ronson

Classically trained, Sarah and Laura also bring a unique dimension as performers; they are one of the only acts in the world that play two instruments together (cello & violin) through one loop station. Seeing and hearing is believing! Another unique dimension they bring to performances is that they can swap instruments during the pieces they play. Their repertoire spans from classical to their own unique take on contemporary hits. So with the Ayoub Sisters, expect the unexpected!

Fresh from recording their debut album at Abbey Road studios with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and with a summer schedule filled with prestigious performances; the future looks very bright for the wonderful Ayoub Sisters!
