Chargaux: Meditations of a G

Jasmin Charles and Margaux Whitney were the violin and viola duo formerly-known as Chargaux. Based in New York, the duo gained immense popularity after working on Grammy-nominated projects with Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. Their strong stage presence, with vibrant styles morphing patterns, textures and bold hairstyles, looks like something out of a fashion show. They performed at the MoMa, Lincoln Center, SXSW and at the White House for Michelle Obama. Rest in peace, Chargaux.

I first came across Chargaux while reading this article and the first thing I thought was, damn I want green eyebrows, too.

If you haven't heard about the Brooklyn-based art/music/fashion duo Chargaux by now, you're seriously missing out. Comprised of two classically-trained string musicians (violin & viola, respectively), the band first rose to fame after years of busking in the New York City subway stations and publishing covers of pop songs on YouTube. Since then, the insanely-stylish duo have collaborated with the likes of Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. They also played an Opening Ceremony fashion show, covering tunes by Kanye West and Beyonce.

Musical achievements aside, Chargaux also creates unique mixed media visuals, which serve as their EP covers and have been featured in art shows around New York. You can peep all of their editorial photographs featuring their truly unbelievable style, eclectic makeup & ever-changing hairstyles on their Instagram. 

Listen to their most recent project, Meditations of a G, here.
