Music: Black Violin

BlackViolin are a classically trained violin duo from South Florida consisting of Wilner“Will B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester. What is interesting about these two is they blend classical violin with hip hop flawlessly. The dancer in me fell in love with their music instantly, ballet meets hip hop, it’s beautiful. While many of their tracks have no lyrics it’s definitely not necessary.

In 2008 they released their self titled album followed by Classically Trained in 2012. They have accompanied artists such as Alicia Keys and made special appearance on Angelina Ballerina. The reason I like these guys is that they aren’t vulgar, that is what I hate most about rap and hip hop music these days so, that’s why I appreciate these talented men.
