PHALAENA means butterfly and symbolizes the lightness, grace and subtle rebirth of nature.
The association/interplay of harp, violin and accordion (BAYAN) offers a unique mix of sounds and promotes the rediscovery of an eclectic, elegant and surprising repertoire.
Sometimes smiling, sometimes heartbreaking and moving.
The transcriptions and interpretations of the Phalaena trio are dedicated and intensely human.

Isabelle Chardon (violin), Sophie HALLYNCK (harp) and Christophe Delporte (accordion) are all teachers at the IMEP(Superior institute for musique and pedagogy in Namur). They decided to mix their sounds and present an elegant trio. 

PHALAENA, means ”butterfly”,  and symbolises the lightness, grace, and the subtle rebirth of nature. 

From Jean Sébastien Bach & Maurice Ravel passing Eric Satie, Camille Saint-Saëns, to Manuel de Falla, the PHALAENA trio amazes with a unique interplay by the three musicians.
