Put Brooklyn-based composers Charly and Margaux together and you get Chargaux, a classically trained duo expanding the reach of the violin and viola. After meeting at the Berklee College of Music, the pair honed a style that melds classical training with an indie sensibility. From humble beginnings as subway performers to collaborations with top hip-hop artists and a 2013 gig at South by Southwest, Chargaux remains dedicated to DIY music making. This creative control is reflected in the 2014 EP Broke & Baroque, an ambitious effort that features folk, vocals, electronic drums and classical melodies.

Price: Free.
