Here is a view from behind the onstage scrim – strings backing up rapper great Childish Gambino at the Greek Theatre UC Berkeley.
It was a full string section: four 1st violins, four 2nd’s, four violas, four cellos and one harp. The violin parts were well-written, melodic and gratifying to play. String harmonies were beautiful, often haunting and dissonant… Last time I played violin for a rap star was for a recording with Puff Daddy!
