ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ashanti Floyd "The Mad Violinist"

Ashanti Floyd, 21, is a talented performing artist who enjoys playing and composing many music genre including hip-hop, jazz, fusion rock, gospel, bluegrass and classical. Trained from an early age in the strings and percussion and having a mastery of music theory, he is considered a "melodic, rhythmic genius."

Ashanti made his debut on the violin at the age of three. Since then he has gained valuable experience through formal and informal studies. Ashanti knew where he wanted to go to college and only applied to one school, the Berklee College of Music. His audition gained him a scholarship and an opportunity of a lifetime. After two semesters he had recorded and performed original compositions with his own rock band, and assisted with the arranging and recording of hip-hop music for other artists. He has performed with a Boston College quartet and as principal violist for the Berklee College Orchestra performing with artists such as Michael Brecker and Darrel Anger. Ashanti's most recent appearances include a live, audience stirring, original rendition of hip-hop music on BET's 106 and Park, the grand opening of the VIP at the B.B. King Blues Club in Nashville Tennessee, and instructing at the Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. At such a young age, Ashanti has performed with many greats such as BB King, Kirk Whalum, Actor Steven Segal, Wynona Judd, Vince Gill, Charlie Atkins, and Stephen Cropper.

It only took me 10 seconds of listening to one track on this CD to catch this guys vibe, and to know that the rest had to be “the bomb” so after I purchased it, I was even more impressed. This is something new, and somewhat innovative. I love it!

Khalid

OFF THE SCALE!!!
Insane!! 21 years old? are you serious? I now believe in reincarnation. This young man has been here before!

Perfect Fusion
This is the perfect fusion of Electric Violin and precision violin method to date. Many try, but the amatuer scrath is horrible. The Mad Violinist opens a violin genre much as Graphallie and Venuti did with Jazz. And I am a 54 year old violinist and I just stated all that. Age doesn't matter!
