Black Violin

Recently collaborating with Kanye West, playing President Obama’s inaugural ball and dropping their second album, Black Violin is in top form! Last week BV returns to Winnipeg for several shows at MTYP and to do 3 days of production at Private Ear Recording with Grammy-Winning producer, Juan Cristobal Losada. With an intoxicating blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B and pop. Accompanied by ace turntable whiz DJTK (Dwayne Dayal) and drummer Beatdown (Jermaine McQueen), they are “young men who mix the brashness and beats of urban hip-hop with the soaring lines and fleet finger work of orchestral virtuosos,” (New York Times).*
