To inspire and be inspired!

Passion, Fury, NUTTIN’ BUT STRINGZ — Classical Violin Crosses Over to Pop, Rap, and Hip-Hop!

New music!  New genre!  New phenomena!

Young adults, Tourie and Damien Escobar, combine the classical sound of the violin with Pop, Rap, and Hip-Hop!  What fury, what passion, WHAT INSPIRATION! (The brothers play their violins so hard, they destroy one bow per show!)

Graduates of the prestigious Julliard School of Music in NYC, Escobars’ mission is to bridge the gap between Pop and Classical music.

Raised by a single mother in the rough neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens (NYC), violin quickly became the refuge to then 7 and 8-year-old brothers.  But life on the streets were equally luring.  Escobars’ musical aspirations were put on hold until they left the bad crowd; cleaned up their act.

“Passion for music and violin saved my life,” said Tourie.

The brothers were relentless and played in the NYC subways for pocket change ($300 each in two hours, three times per week — wow!).

In 2005, Tourie and Damien entered the talent contest at the legendary Apollo Theater and won!

The boys have never looked back.

Tourie and Damien have appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, Today Show with Katie Couric, at the White House (performing for President George W. Bush), and the list goes on.

Escobars’ CD, Struggle from the Subway to the Charts, is a brilliant blend of classical daring intertwined with rap undertones.  NUTTIN’ BUT STRINGZ (NBS) has created a new genre that’s being talked about and admired.  The buzz has begun.  Their music is a provocative and stirring Thunder that will be analyzed and copied for years to come.  (Anonymous)
