Black Violin works hard, but makes it all look like play…Sometimes they play with the intense seriousness of orchestral soloists; at others they fiddle as if at a hoedown; at still others they strum the violin and viola like guitars.
– NEW YORK TIMES
Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste (viola) and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester (violin) are Black Violin, a duo who radically fuse classical, hip-hop, rock, bluegrass, R&B and pop to create a unique generation-defying, groundbreaking sound. Joined on stage by a drummer and DJ, they were named the hottest band at SXSW in 2013. This South Florida hip-hop, Brahms-playing quartet has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles.Always bold, eternally profound, Black Violin transports and entertains in a way that has never been seen on stage before and may never be seen again. Less a concert, more so a block party, Black Violin knows the meaning of an outrageously good time. Don’t miss an evening that is sure to surprise and delight you!
