Violin like you’ve never heard it before
Named one of the hottest bands at South by Southwest in 2013, Black Violin plays a blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B and bluegrass music. The classically trained twosome, Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester are a welcome revelation for their ability to meld highbrow and pop culture into a single genre-busting act. Live, they are accompanied by their band, featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal). Individually and together, this talented duo has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles.
