This young violinist is completely revolutionizing the instrument

Damien Escobar - Violin prodigy

Damien Escobar, also known as Dame Esco, is an American violinist and composer.

He grew up in Queens, New York City and started playing the violin at 8-years-old. By the age of 10 he was accepted into the incredibly prestigious Julliard School of Music.

Quickly named a prodigy by the music community, he would go on to play on street corners and in subways around the city.

In 2006, he had a big break when he was asked to take a role in the movie “Step Up.”

Since that time Damien has released a few celebrated songs of his own, while continuing to push the violin to its absolute limits.

In this video Damien takes a hip-hop beat and weaves it perfectly with his amazing violin skills.

It’s an emotion track, an emotional instrumental addition and he makes it look easy.
