The NAMM Foundation Celebration for Music Education Featuring Black Violin

Black  Violin is  composed  of  classically trained  violist  and  violinist  Wil  B. and  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.”  Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kanye  West,  Aerosmith and Tom Petty,  and has creatively collaborated with the likes of  Wu-Tang  Clan,  Wyclef  Jean, and Alicia Keys. Black Violin ’s most recent record, Stereotypes,  debuted at  #1 on the Billboard  Classical  Crossover  Chart and at #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. NPR  praised  the  album  and  band,  saying  “their music  will  keep classical music  alive  for the  next  generation.”
