Sons of Mystro

Saturday, January 27, 2024

Malcolm McNeish and his brother, Umoja, are the violin duo Sons of Mystro. In their electric live act, they use violins to interpret pop music, reggae, and other genres with DJ Venimis and a drummer.

Protégés of hip-hop duo Black Violin, Sons of Mystro have won the “Emerging Artist Under 21 Award'' at the International Reggae and World Music Awards, opened for Sean Paul and the Fray, and the South Florida-raised brothers’ version of “Back in Black AC/DC” was the theme for the Miami Heat’s 2011-2012 season. 

Born in South Florida to a Jamaican father and Barbadian mother, Malcolm, 23, and his 20-year old brother, Umoja, learned to play violin through South Florida’s public school system, and attended Dillard High School for the Performing Arts. Together, these brothers are Sons of Mystro.   

Reflecting their Caribbean roots, the Sons of Mystro have graced the same stage with reggae and dancehall veterans such as Marcia Griffiths, John Holt, Ken Boothe, Dobby Dobson, Freddie McGregor, Frankie Paul, Barrington Levy, and artists from the now generation such as Mr. Vegas, Beenie Man, Romain Virgo, Etana. Many of these artists have expressed amazement at the depth and variety of their musical selections and their innovative and artistic arrangements.

Their debut recording, “Reggae Strings” is available now wherever music is streamed or sold. Mentored by Black Violin, these artists’ stars are on the rise.
