Some history for such a well known ‘choon’ is deserved…

The Flower Duet (Sous le dôme épais) is a famous duet for sopranos from Léo Delibes’ opera Lakmé, first performed in Paris in 1883. The duet takes place in Act 1 of the three act opera. Its ubiquitous presence in films and popular music since the mid-1980s was inaugurated by its usage in the 1983 horror film The Hunger and of course the commercials of British Airways.

Our brief was to create a powerful, contemporary and classy version of the British Airways ‘theme’ – “think William Orbit” was a phrase from the creative meeting.

All instruments are software based apart from the finger pops. Bottom end really kicks if listening on decent speakers. See our British Airways India pitch here. A piece we’re really proud of featuring real Sitar and Tabla.

And our Argentinean one here.
