"Beautiful ... sophisticated ... breathtaking." — The New Yorker

A rollicking around-the-world adventure, Je dis oui! features a cavalcade of songs — many of them original — in French, Farsi, Armenian, Portuguese, Arabic, Turkish, Xhosa and English, and affirms the band's 22-year history of global inclusivity and collaborative spirit. Je dis oui! — which means "I say yes" in French — is the optimistic mantra of the chorus of "Joli garçon" ("Pretty boy"), one of three songs co-written by the band for the soon-to-be-released film "Souvenir," starring the legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert.

In addition to songs sung by lead singers China Forbes and Storm Large, Je dis oui! includes guest vocalists NPR's Ari Shapiro (who sings a new Arabic version of "La Soledad" from the band's first album) and Rufus Wainwright, who sings a stunning version of the Rodgers & Hart classic "Blue Moon." The album also marks the singing debut of two long-time friends of the band: Ikram Goldman and Kathleen Saadat.
