About Black Violin
Black Violin is composed of classical violist, Wil B., and violinist, Kev Marcus, who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” The duo has shared stages with Kanye West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty. Also, they have creatively collaborated with Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, and Alicia Keys.
The band’s most recent record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR praises the album and band, saying “their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.”
Earlier in the year, Black Violin was announced as the “Turnaround Artist for Mary B. Bethune Elementary School” in their hometown of Broward County, Florida. The program infuses the arts into struggling schools to support overall reform efforts. Also, the program pairs each school with an artist to provide mentorship.
Founded by President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in 2012, the program partners schools with music instrument grants, art supplies, professional development, and musicals.
