“Black Violin upends cultural and musical stereotypes… An unexpected blend of classically trained musicianship and hip-hop beats and inventiveness.” The Miami Herald
A one-of-a-kind mash-up of classical, hip hop, rock and R&B with a message, the classically-trained string duo Black Violin – Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) – fuses the sounds of today with classical virtuosity. Or, in the words of Black Violin, “It’s a party, man.” Adding DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes to the lineup, the group has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aretha Franklin and Tom Petty. They’re bringing their chart-topping, genre-bending, stereotype-busting sound on the Impossible Tour, proving that there are no limits to what we can achieve, regardless of circumstance.
