Black Violin is the unexpectedly wonderful blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music. Live, they are often accompanied by their crack band, featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal), and drummer Beatdown (Jermaine McQueen). Since forming more than a decade ago, 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 . . . 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.”
