Jean-Pierre Barda (born March 7, 1967, Paris) is a Swedish singer, actor, make up artist and hair dresser of Algerian descent. He is most notable for being one of the founding members of the pop group Army of Lovers.


Early life

Barda was born in Paris, France, and moved to Sweden with his Algerian Jewish family as a child. Barda started out working with Alexander Bard as a part of the music group Barbie. He initially called himself Farouk, but reverted to his real name when Barbie later evolved into the group Army of Lovers. Barda has been with the group throughout all of its incarnations.


In 2004, there was initially a suggestion that Barda would be part of a new band called Bodies Without Organs. This did not come to fruition, and Barda's explicit involvement extended only as far as co-writing BWO's first single "Living In A Fantasy"

Besides his work in music, Barda is also very well-known in Sweden as a hair-dresser and make-up artist. He has done work for movies, TV, photo shoots even for the Queen of Sweden. He also has a career as an actor, and has appeared in film, TV, and on stage. In this field he is currently working with a 3G phone company on developing a TV-style fashion programme for mobile phones.
