From the moment they met serendipitously near
Berklee College of Music in Boston, Charly & Margaux formed a string duo
that alters the reputation of classical instruments and the people who play
them. These dynamos, better known as CHARGAUX (pronounced “shar-go”), do
everything from musical composition to the visual curation of their brand, all
while making it look beautiful and effortless, truly taking renaissance women
to a new standard. 

Within a year of
meeting, Chargaux contributed a distinctive string arrangement for
Don’t Kill My Vibe” for Kendrick Lamar‘s Grammy nominated Good Kid
m.a.a.d. City (Interscope). Experimenting with Youtube as a
platform, Chargaux quickly started a buzz that inspired their move to
Brooklyn. The pair is now recognized by their emotionally moving performances,
whether down in busy New York City subway testing their audience or at gala
held in the White House playing for the First Lady, Michelle Obama and her
honored guests. 

Utilizing their diverse skills sets, the
mission for Chargaux is multifaceted and unique; always integrating
their versatile visual aesthetic with their dynamic
soundscapes. Chargaux’s love for fashion and visual art has inspired
collaborations with Red Bull Studios NYC, Opening Ceremony and Thom

In 2013 CHARGAUX released the
Gallerina Suites, a succinct instrumental EP with a soulful take on classical
composition. Their 2014 release, Broke & Baroque features candid interview
excerpts that describe their journey as rising artists interwoven with songs
that capture both their unique orchestral sound and vocal arrangements. 

Highlights of Chargaux’s career include
performances at the Lincoln Center in DC and Perez Art Museum in Miami, as well
as features in Vogue’s summer issue and in the Adidas StellaSport Campaign.
