Kytami takes violin to new dimensions

E-mail Print PDF

Even though I’d rather carve out my eardrums with a dull spoon than listen to dance music I love to see something new and exciting — like Vancouver violin ace Kytami, who Kytami and DJ Generic. Photo by Richard Ameryhelped found  World meets Celtic meets dance band Delhi 2 Dublin.

I knew Kytami would take the violin to  strange new places as she did at the Slice, Feb. 16. She blending classical music with a whole lot of pop accompanied and thudding dance beats by DJ Generic. She even  had  rapper Mishap performed a  guest spot with her.

 While most of her set  was instrumental, she showed some really nice singing chops as well. She leaped from side to side of the stage while playing some amazing violin straddling multiple genres. She had several guitar effects  hooked up to her violin which sounded out of this world as she proved a wall of strings.

 Yet it wasn’t just incredibly fast fiddle playing , though some of it was. She also played some really beautiful classically inspired melodies, which were simply breathtaking.
