Kev Marcus and Wil B were violin sensations at Florida’s famed Dillard Performing Arts High School. The duo, along with DJ TK, set out to merge their classical music training with their love of hip-hop, bringing the two genres together with a backbeat and four strings apiece. Their seamless attack is unlike anything heard before. Black Violin has performed on Broadway at the New Victory Theater and has shared concert stages with musicians like Alicia Keys, P. Diddy and Akon, thrilling crowds with the skill of their bows. After much success with their unique experiment, these musical innovators have dedicated themselves to inspiring musicians of all ages to investigate the world of classical music, as well as the nearly forty years of hip-hop history.
