Black Violin: Stereotypes

Black Violin is the head-turning duo of violist Wilner Baptiste and violinist Kevin Sylvester. Their second CD, Stereotypes, confronts the reality that many people don’t expect Black artists to be classically trained, let alone blending magnificent strings with hip hop and dance grooves. But as Wil Baptiste says in this audio portrait, they are all about breaking stereotypes and bringing out the best in people through music.
