Black Violin is an American Grammy award-winning hip hop duo from Florida famous for using the classical instrument in the pop and contemporary genre. They fuse classical music with modern beats and hip-hop that you can hear in clubs and bars. They started as a satirical duo that performed skits of music with their violins, which made them stand out from other performers. They quickly made their way to a national exposure in 2014, in an Alicia Keys performance at the Billboard Awards.
Black Violin, which is comprised of Kevin Sylvester and Wilner Baptiste, started to get traction in the mid-2000s after winning the talent show "Showtime" at the Apollo in 2005. Much to their success, this helped them skyrocket to many other awards and chart-topping music whilst creating a name in the music industry. After their full-length recording debut in 2008, Black Violin topped the Billboard Classical crossover chart. Years later, they would see themselves hit the R&B Top Five with their third album and major-label debut, 2015's "Stereotypes."
Sylvester and Baptiste attended Dillard High School of Performing Arts and decided to form the performing duo named after an album by swing-era violinist Stuff Smith. They created traction for the unconventional electrifying violin performances. During college, they experimented on blending the two genres along with dance and stage presence. Amid mixtape releases, they issued their eponymous debut album in 2008 and Classically Trained in 2012. They reached number one on Billboard's Classical Crossover Albums chart on their performance on "A Flat" released in 2012. In their "Stereotypes" album released in 2015, they invited numerous collaborators to the recording, including Grammy-winning singer Melanie Fiona, rapper PharoaheMonch, and keyboardist Ray Angry. The collection consists of 11 impressive and soulful tunes that can win the hearts of both contemporary and classical fans, creating an eclectic array of music.
