Black Violin is a marvelous modern mix of classical, hip-hop, rock, and R&B featuring the classically trained violin duo of Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester and Wilner “Wil” Baptiste. These exceptional young musicians offer a dazzling display of violin virtuosity as they joyfully create their own genre-bending style of music. It’s fresh and fun, full of funky musical surprises—a whole new way to experience the sound of the violin in all its iterations. At home on the world’s classical stages as well as festivals like Bonnaroo and SXSW, Black Violin offers an amazingly versatile program of groundbreaking compositions.
