The PAMPLEMOUSSE COLLECTIVE are pleasantly surprised when they discover the positive reaction to their Franglais acoustic driven versions of many well-known songs. Audiences genuinely appear happier thanks to the unconcealed joy evident in the way they perform.
Starting off in 2012 as Charlie & Lucile expanded from duo to a band - hoping to flesh out an already successful song - they have brought on board the sounds and influences not only of the other instruments but of other cultures and nationalities.
The goal continues to be to create entertaining and enjoyable music and to bring that music to an ever larger audience. As happy playing at a street corner as a large festival they continue to bring pleasure to all who hear them.
