About

Silk’n Beats is an award–winning, London–based, duo combining the sounds of a classically–trained electric violinist with those of a chart–topping artist performing simultaneous vocal percussion, singing and acoustic guitar.

Both performers merge their individual artistry, creating unique arrangements of well–known classics ranging from pop to rock.

Bringing style, class and surprise to an exciting and memorable live show, Silk’n Beats is the first duo of its kind.
