“The Black Violin Experience Tour”
Invoking a mystifying musical fusion of exquisite classical sounds and exhilarating hip-hop beats, the two-time Grammy nominated duo is led by classically trained musicians Wil Baptiste (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin). Their concert performances boldly merge centuries of music and unites audiences with a message of hope and possibility.
On stage, Kev gives an electrifying violin performance along with Wil’s magnetizing viola and vocals. Joining them are Nat Stokes on drums, DJ SPS on the turntable, and Liston Gregory on keys. Together they are re-conceptualizing what a violin concert looks and sounds like, building bridges to a place where Mozart, Marvin Gaye and Kendrick Lamar harmoniously coexist.
The band uses their unique blend of classical and hip-hop music, often described as “classical boom,” to “keep classical music alive for the next generation” – National Public Radio.
