The Christiaan Barnard Trio, aka Le Trio de Christiaan Barnard.

Originally set up as an outlet for tunes I was writing that were not suitable for Monmon in 2011.

I play guitar, bouzouki, bass, drums, harmonica and programme/sample.

Quite a bit of it is in French - Monmon didn't like me singing in French, which is fair enough, but I enjoy being able to sing in two languages. Being bilingual to any degree is, ultimately, a very pleasurable thing. Something to do with synapses...

As well as original songs I've also covered some chanson (Piaf &Gainsberg) and some other big songs, so as to pull them apart and work out how they fit back together.
