Damien Escobar is a world-renowned violinist, author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Hailing from Jamaica, Queens, New York. A two-time Emmy Award-winning violinist — is in the Bach Would’ve Played Hip-Hop camp. And so would anyone who has listened to Escobar’s enchanting fusion of classical violin over hip-hop beats. His musical career spans over a decade, and his inspiring journey of making it big, losing it all, fighting to rebuild, and getting a second chance at success is as much a part of his brand identity than being among the top violinists in the world.
