Not your ordinary classical violin performance, Black Violin stages an evening of contemporary classical, jazz, funk and hip-hop music. Influences range from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z. Winners of the 2005 Apollo Legends title, the group creates a soulful, concert-like atmosphere with the addition of a DJ. With Kev Marcus on violin, Wil B on viola and DJ TK, Black Violin produces the ultimate synergy between classical and hip-hop.
