Sons of Mystro
Have you ever experienced a musical duo, in this case, brothers, who play all genres of popular music, using the violin instead of their voices to express a song’s lyrics? If not, then you must not have heard of the violin virtuosos Sons of Mystro! They use their violins to interpret reggae classics, American pop songs, and their own creations. At an age when music is coming to be more defined by genres and labels, Sons of Mystro shows that music does not exist within a box, but rather exists in another space – one as open and unrestrained as the minds that produce it.
The brothers that make up the Sons of Mystro were born and raised in South Florida to a Jamaican father (named Mystro!) and a Barbadian mother. Malcolm, 23, and his 20-year-old brother Umoja learned to play the violin through South Florida’s public school system and attended Dillard High School for the Performing Arts. Mentored by fellow Florida-raised artists, Black Violin, these musicians’ stars are on the rise!
