Black Violin

Impossible Tour
(2019/2020 Performing Arts)

Tue, Jan 28
7:00 PM

“Black Violin upends cultural and musical stereotypes… An unexpected blend of classically trained musicianship and hip-hop beats and inventiveness.” The Miami Herald

A unique mash-up of classical, hip hop, rock and R&B with a message, the classically-trained string duo Black Violin – Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) – fuses the sounds of today with classical virtuosity. Their new album, Take the Stairs, was released in November to widespread acclaim, landing coveted spots at the top of the classical crossover, hip hop and R&B charts. Adding DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes to the lineup, they’re bringing their genre-busting sound to Santa Barbara on the Impossible Tour.
