Les Zéoles is a dynamic Parisian duo with the diatonic accordion of Amélie Denarié and the chromatic accordion of Anne Guinot. They have been playing together for over 10 years. Their self-penned lyrical, bittersweet and playful dance tunes are inspired by both traditional and classical French and European music. Dance is always at the centre of their work, but with their respective training as classical pianists, they also play concerts. They have produced two albums full of great dance music - Des Papillons dans le Ventre (Butterflies in the Belly) in 2009 and Sur Mesure in 2011.

Traditonal french dances from the centre of France are mainly couple or long line dances such as schottische, 2 and 3-time bourree, polka, chapelloise, rondeau, mazurka, 3, 5, 8 and 11-time waltzes. They also play a few Swedish Polskas. There are many, many variations but all fairly easy for dancers to pick up in an evening.
