I think it's pretty fair to say that we have heard of some pretty "Dope" violinist, especially nowadays when string music is being more recognized and appreciated by a much wider range of age groups. There are three siblings born and raised right here in Buffalo New York, Johnny, Jaliyah, and Rahim together they are called "Vibrant Strings", while most children at the age they started playing must at, was in the sandbox, these three was taking lesson's in school and privately, and it really paid off.

Here Is What Makes This Trio Unique.

The trio enjoys playing together, but on occasion, you may catch them as a duet or individually. I recently had the pleasure of working with Rahim at a wedding where he amazed the crowd with a variety of music. What kind of music? well, the trio is classically trained. Let me tell you, they play everything. Rahim wowed the crowd with old school music, new R&B and, I think I remember hearing hip-hop, and if I didn't, I'm sure he could have played it.

Some Of The Places and People They Have Performed For.

All three of them have played and were members of the Buffalo Philharmonia Orchestra and played alongside and opened up for the Philharmonic Orchestra at Kleinhans Music Hall. They have also opened up for The Dance Theater of Harlem at Shea's, Buffalo Mayor Byron W Brown, some events for The Buffalo Urban League, and the Black Achievers Awards Banquet.

What Kind Of Moves Is Being Made By The Members?

Johnny is the eldest of the group, he competes in bodybuilding and collaborates with Buffalo Pro-Fit. Jaliyah is an author of children's literacy books pertaining to music. Rahim is an aspiring actor who already has cameos in some TV series produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. This trio is something to deal with and has a very bright future. I'm looking forward to what else they have in store.
