Black Violin Coming to The Zeiterion
Hip-Hop Violin Due to Come to New Bedford for One Show Only
Black Violin will perform at the Zeiterion Theater Friday May 29, 8PM
A decade since its inception, Black Violin has been named Top 5 New Artists at the popular South by Southwest music festival, performed at President Obama’s inaugural ball, and sold out a 16-night run on Broadway.
The pair stands out for their genre-bending style, evident in their eclectic assortment of collaborations. Black Violin has written and performed with Hip-Hop stand outs Kanye West, Wu-Tang, and Nas as evergreen music legends Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, and Tom Petty.
Classical influences from Bach’s concertos and Puccini’s operas meld with contemporary hip-hop and rock, alongside mid-century R&B and early bluegrass.
Not only do the pair put on an incredible show, as evident by their overnight success, but they are activists for keeping musical education in our schools. The two see their collaboration as a way of overcoming obstacles, the temptation of the street, and staying strong.
Check out “A Flat” (2012) and you’ll be hooked.
Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind performance by the up-coming genre-breaking music moguls Black Violin.
