Black Violin: Classical Boom Tour | California Center for the Arts, Escondido | Thursday, 22. February 2018

Presented by the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

“Black Violin upends cultural and musical stereotypes …an unexpected blend of classically trained musicianship and hip-hop beats and inventiveness.”

The Miami Herald

A truly unique and incredible experience, Black Violin, has been wowing audiences with their artistry, musicianship and completely original sound since they formed in 2004.

The two members of Black Violin, Kev Marcus and Wil B, first started playing together in High School; Kev on the violin and Wil on the viola. After High School the two parted ways to earn musical degrees in college but quickly regrouped and began the journey that would become Black Violin.

Since their first self-titled release in 2008, Black Violin not only created a new genre of music known as “Classical Hip-Hop”, they bridged an enormous gap between fans of both styles. As producers and writers the duo have worked with Kanye West, Aerosmith, Wu-Tang Clan, and the late Tom Petty.

Their live shows are nothing short of exhilarating. With the entire goal of bringing people together and sharing in the inspiration that only music can provide; Black Violin aims to give you an experience like no other.

As Kev Marcus puts it, “Hip-hop and classical, in a lot of ways, are both party music for different genres.” So, come join the party!

Black Violin once again takes the stage at The California Center for the Arts Feb. 22nd!
