Black Violin will be performing in Steele Hall on Friday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. The concert is free to Cal U students and $25 for non-students.
To most people, jazz, hip-hop, funk,
and classical are musical genres. But to revolutionary music group Black
Violin, they're nothing but ingredients.
Combining a daunting array of
musical styles and influences to produce a signature sound that is not quite
maestro, not quite emcee, this group of two classically trained violinists and
their DJ is redefining the music world-one string at a time. With influences
ranging from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z, Black Violin breaks all
the rules, blending the classical with the modern to create something rare-a
sound that nobody has ever heard, but that everybody wants to feel.
In an age where music is coming to
be more and more defined by the labels given to it, Black Violin shows that
music does not exist within a box, but rather exists in another space-one as
open and unrestrained as the minds that produce it.
