Art Basel week is the time of the year when the vanguard of the art world converges on Miami Beach. This year, The Stage Miami will be presenting a gallery of the best of old school hip-hop and new urban sounds during the height of Art Basel, featuring De La Soul on Thursday, December 5, the Wu-Tang Clanâ€™s Ghostface Killah on December 6 during Beats & Rhymes Fridays and Black Violin on Saturday, December 7, among others.
Black Violin wowed show-goers at The Stage this past summer with a performance that artfully combined classical influences with hip hop beats. Founders Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) are four-time winners of â€œShowtime at the Apolloâ€ who met while students at Fort Lauderdaleâ€™s Dillard High School of Performing Arts. The group, which now includes a drummer, cellist and a DJ, has also worked with Kanye West, 50 Cent,Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles, among others.
