Black Violin, a hip hop classical duo from Florida, met at the Dillard High School for Performing Arts. They've won the Showtime at the Apollo 2005 Legend title and have performed with Alicia Keys.
They'll be playing as part of the 50 Years of the Beatles panel, so that should be pretty rad. and they've got a show on Thursday night at Scoot Inn. If you haven't heard their version of the Brandenburg Concertos, you should have a little listen.
And while you're at it, peep violist Wil B's...
