Black Violin - Stereotypes

Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste (viola) and Kevin “Kev” Marcus Sylvester (violin) are Black Violin, a duo who radically fuse hip-hop and pop with classical music to create a kaleidoscope of sounds uniquely their own. Stereotypes effortlessly shifts from classic hip-hop (“Invisible” featuring legendary MC Pharoahe Monch) to pulsing R&B and fiery instrumentals. "Stay Clear” features rising star Kandace Springs alongside keyboard mastermind Robert Glasper. “Runnin’” finds Wil and Kev flexing their virtuosic muscles - a flurry of notes both dexterous and emotive.
