Sons of Mystro
Galloway, N.J. - Sons of Mystro, a musical duo who play more than 10 different genres of popular music using violin instead of voice, perform 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at Stockton`s Performing Arts Center.
Tickets are $32 with discounts for seniors, children and groups.
The Sons of Mystro are two brothers, Malcolm, 23, and Umoja, 20, who were born in South Florida to a Jamaican father and Barbadian mother. They honed their skills in the Broward County public school system in Florida and the Dillard Performing Arts and Broward College.
Since forming in June 2010, Sons of Mystro has performed at a variety of events including ESPN/BCS Championship party, opening for The Fray, the 8th Annual Jazz in The Gardens, and alongside R&B Band Jazz acts such as Najee, Fantasia, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Charlie Wilson, New Edition and Earth Wind and Fire.
They were inspired by the groundbreaking group Black Violin. After seeing Black Violin perform and meeting them backstage, they practiced and formed the duo. The pair use violins to interpret reggae classics, American pop songs and their own creations accompanied by a DJ and a drummer.
They also are winners of the Emerging Artist Under 21 Award at the International Reggae and World Music Awards.
