Black Violin

Venue: Amphitheater

Description: Black Violin is a mash-up of classical, hip-hop, rock and R&B featuring the classically trained violin duo of Kevin "Kev Marcus" Sylvester and Wilner "Wil" Baptiste. These powerful musicians offer violin virtuosity within their own genre-bending style of music. Black Violin has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles. "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." --The New York Times
