When one thinks of the kind of music normally associated with the violin or the viola, one usually thinks of classical music played in fancy, ornate halls with people sitting in a sedate manner. There's no "nodding of the head" or "shaking of the hips." The kind of music that, as legendary musician George Clinton might say, "devoid of funk."
While that might be the case some of the time, a few musicians have emerged to "flip the classical script." One such group is the dynamic duo of Black Violin.
Black Violin are a pair of classically-trained artists who have infused classical music with their own special brand of hip-hop, jazz, r&b and pop, thrilling audiences all around the world.
