Black Violin: American hip-hop duo, Kev Marcus and Wil B, are classically trained string instrumentalists who meld highbrow and pop culture, “Brandenburg” and “breakdown,” into a single genre-busting act, a groundbreaking blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and even bluegrass music. Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) play tunes from their second CD, Classical Trained, which cleverly features smooth verses and symphonic hooks underscored by an array of rhythmic grooves, ranging from pop-rock cadences to trunk rattling bass. Armed with stage experiences with Alicia Keys, Mike Shinoda, and Gym Class Heroes, this promising group is stretching the fabric of how music is interpreted. Add the spellbinding vocals of Wil B and the innovative approach to the violin and you are sure to be taken on an incredible journey.
