Chargaux is a Brooklyn-based string duo that describes themselves as an art collective who has altered the reputation of classical instruments and the people who play them.
In this video from Refinery29, meet group members Charly and Margaux and hear how the group started making modern music with classical instruments.
Even though the duo are musically opposite, Charly and Margaux complement each other, mixing together the viola’s dark romanticism and the violin’s colorful, upbeat vibe. They also had similar musical upbringings. They both started playing at the same age in public school, and both were classically trained. So no matter how far their styles stray from each other, they have a base to hold on to.
