It’s safe to say that in Austin, Texas, SXSW is pretty much the end all to the music scene. The 30-year-old music festival boasts emerging new artists, local favorites, and A-list celebrities from all across the country. So when they give their stamp of approval to a group (or in this case, a duo), it’s safe to say they know what they’re talking about.
Enter Black Violin– an impressive combination of hip-hop and classical music that’s pretty much taking the music world by storm. The duo, who hails from Florida, has performed with everyone from Kanye West to Alicia Keys, Lupe Fiasco, Wu-Tang Clan, and Aerosmith.
Oh, and they were asked to perform 3 years in a row by SXSW.
Luckily, for those who missed the classically-trained extraordinaires, they’re coming back to Austin for a one night engagement at the Long Center on April 29th. And we CAN’T WAIT. Of course, when it comes to music, we know you’ll be much more impressed by their YouTube repertoire than any praises we could sing them (which are many). Which is why we’ve collected some of our favorites and compiled them here. Happy watching!
